This week's Weekly Geeks asks you to tell us about your globe trotting via books. Are you a global reader? How many countries have you "visited" in your reading? What are your favorite places or cultures to read about? Can you recommend particularly good books about certain regions, countries or continents? How do you find out about books from other countries? What countries would you like to read that you haven't yet?I have travelled to 14 countries, at least as far as I can remember. Something tells me I'm missing some, but I can't remember if I read anything that took place or is by a Russian author or a few other places. But 14 I know for sure I've visited through my readings. And hope to "visit" more (some of the books I've added in my collection the past moth or so take place in some countries I haven't read yet).
Use your own criteria about what you consider to be "visiting" -- whether a book is written about the country or by a native or resident of the country. (From Weekly Geeks)
Here's my map
create your own visited country map
Because its hard to see my countries are: Canada, United States, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Japan, China, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Spain, United Kingdom.
Places I've actually visited my self are:
Canada (of Course although I've only visited 2 provinces outside my own)
I'm not much of a traveller, although I really want to visit Europe.
Does anyone know if there is a challenge about this week's Weekly Geeks Theme? (My challenge addiction is tingling)
