196 Countries, 196 Books

Bucket list project

The first thing I want to put on my Bucket list, is a rather large project. Actually, it will probably take me a few years to finish, but here it is.

I want to read a book from every country in the world.

I first came across the idea, when I saw this TED Talk, where a woman talked about wanting to expand her knowledge of the world through reading.

So I found her webpage, www.ayearofreadingtheworld.com, and decided to give it a go. I have always loved reading books and this seemed perfect for me, because I am addicted to feelings of accomplishment. It’s like a competition just for me, and it actually makes me put aside more time for reading.

When I finish reading a book, I will share my experience with the book, in a Tuesday post. I might need your help though, dear readers, to find certain books from around the world. The selection of foreign literature here is not as massive as I might have hoped.

I am really excited about this and I can hardly wait to fill my apartment with books from all over the world! It also seems like a ‘cheap’ alternative to backpacking all over the Earth.

 

Are you reading anything thrilling at the moment that I should check out? 🙂
