Around the World 2016 Reading Challenge

AroundTheWorld2016

  • I CAME ACROSS THIS CHALLENGE AND THOUGHT IT LOOKED LIKE A LOT OF FUN.  i LOVED THE IDEA OF MAPPING LOCATIONS!  i DON'T REALLY HAVE ANY GOALS.  i JUST WANT TO SEE WHERE MY READING TAKES ME.

  • WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE ABOUT?

    The goal of the Around the World challenge is to visit as many different places in the world through books, especially places that are rather rare, and not the kind of settings you see in 95% of all the books you read. We’re are going to do this by creating a google map where every pin on the map stands for one book. The goal is to have as many pins as possible and they shouldn’t be very close to each other but spread all over.  
  • The mini-challenges

    The mini-challenges are additional challenges that can help you archive your goal in different ways, but they are completely optional and you can do as many of them as you want. For many of them you can set your own goal, some of them have fixed numbers of books that are to be read:
  •  
  • Read one book for each continent
  • Read one book for each state in the US
  • Read one book for each ocean (the character travels across the ocean, no matter how)
  • The mountaineering challenge: climb the Seven Summits
  • Three Poles Challenge: visit North Pole, South Pole and Mount Everest
  • Visit a certain number of extreme points of Earth
  • Read a certain number of books set in capital cities 
  • Read a certain number of books set in at least 5 different places (e.g. road trip books)
  • Read a certain number of books that are set in two places from different continents
  • Read a certain number of books within a 100km/1.5 Mile radius of where you live
  • Visit a certain number of the most famous landmarks in the world
  • A to Z challenge: Find a place for each letter in the alphabet
  • Visit a certain number of countries.
  • Read books from authors from a certain number of different countries.
  • Read a certain number of books set in places you’ve visited yourself.
I DON'T HAVE ANY GOALS FOR THE MINI-CHALLENGES, BUT I WILL AT LEAST KEEP TRACK.
