  1. I am definitely going to join you in this challenge! I love to travel....but hate to leave home. This will be my golden opportunity. I read one travel book in 2013 and it was the best book I read in years...still is. (See blogplost dd 18 Dec 2013 on my blog) 'On the Trails of Genghis Khan by Australian Time Cope. I will start gathering some book titles and have looked at a few of your past reviews. BTW how many countries are there in the world? Looking forward to this, thanks for the great idea!

  4. Hi, Paul. I found you through ipsofactodotme's post about the challenge. One question: I've been doing an "Travel the World Challenge" would it be okay to incorporate those books into this one and just start from where I still need to go?

  5. Feel free to borrow as many of the titles that you wish too. There will not be any fiction in the list though. Thanks for the link on your blog too. I see we have two mutual friends on good reads
