Around the World 2015 Challenge

Hosted by: All About Books

This challenge is just for fun and can be used as motivation to read more books with diverse settings. 

There are mini challenges that seem like a lot of fun to attempt such as reading a book for each continent and reading a book for each state in the US but I'm not going to make any of them a priority. I will go back at the end of the year and see if I've completed any of them, though.

I started something similar to this on my own at the beginning of 2014 but ended up forgetting all about it. This year, I hope to keep up with it and see what my map looks like at the end of the year. 

Hmm. I wonder why my locations aren't showing on this map. Anyone know?

Locations I have visited in 2015 via literature:

As of October 23rd, I have been to:

Long Island, NY, USA (We Were Liars)
Milton, UK (North and South)
Waingunga River, India (The Jungle Book)
