  1. A great button for this reading challenge! It sounds like a fun way to travel. Enjoy, Vicki!
    I look forward to your “worldly” reviews. 🙂

  2. So glad you are joining us for the challenge Vicki! I enjoyed the Story Hour and just posted my review last week. I’m giving away an ARC for it during our Travel the World in Books Readathon that starts September 1st. Hope you heard about it and will join us too! We’ve got lots of giveaways, chats and mini-chchallenges!

    I haven’t read anything in Haiti, I look forward to your reviews.

    • Thanks Tanya! I plan on joining the challenge, I just haven’t finished the post yet. I need to finish it today and get it posted since it starts Monday. Thanks to the three of you for hosting both!

  3. Hi Vicki,

    I am SOOO! tempted by this challenge, but I am trying to hold out and not succumb!

    I am notoriously bad at keeping up with and completing challenges and only end up by getting disillusioned with myself.

    Since beginning blogging and as part of my review requests, I have already read books from quite a few different worldwide places and countries, I was surprised at exactly how many, when I sat and thought about it.

    I love the sound of the first two stops on your tour, especially ‘The Dew Breaker’, wish you every success with your quest and look forward to following your progress and reviews along the way.

    I do have a couple of good recommendations if you run short of books, although I am sure you won’t!
