Around the World 2015 Challenge

Hosted by: All About Books

This challenge is just for fun and can be used as motivation to read more books with diverse settings. 
The “Rules”:
  • There is no start and/or end date for when to join the challenge (latest date to enter a link is Dec 31th, 2015)
  • A book counts if you’ve read it in 2015 (= started AND finished in 2015), no matter when you joined the challenge
  • If characters travel to different places in the book, every place counts
    Tip: you can connect places on a google map! 
  • One book can count for multiple mini challenges
The mini-challenges:
These mini-challenges are optional! The main goal is just to have a map full of dots that are hopefully spread all over the world. Some of these mini-challenges are rather easy, others not so much. For some you can set your own goal of books you want to 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.
Here is a google spreadsheet that can help you keep track of your progress for these mini-challenges. IMPORTANT: go to the Read Me tab first to learn how to use it! This is a read-only file. You have to make yourself a copy within your google docs to be able to use it. (via File>Make a copy)
