Around The World in 80 Books

Finding a book set in Botswana today gave me the idea of this challenge. The countries are not fixed, but merely serve as a suggestion. If I end up reading a book set in the Ukraine or Jamaica or some such, I will swap it out for one of the others. I simply like the idea of reading books set across the world. The books can be fiction or non-fiction or even a children’s book. It all counts! (apart from travel guides!)

Let me know if you are travelling around the world in 80 books as well! I would love to see more people doing this. 🙂
