Reading Around The World

I first started keeping track of where I've traveled in books via a group on Goodreads. I've decided it's just easier for me to keep it here on my own blog, so from now on this is where I'll be posting my world travels :)

These are my travels since January 1, 2013 which is when I started keeping track. I've books based in many more countries but I began the challenge in 2013 so that's all that I'll include here. If a book is based in more than country I try to use the country that the majority of the book is set in unless I've already read a book from there. I also only chose one country per book.
