Where Are You Reading 2013

2013I am joining one challenge this year… well sort of. I wasn’t going to join any and then I saw Sheila’s where are you reading challenge map idea and I LOVED it. But I plan to tweak it just a bit for my personal needs. Here are my 2013 Where Are You Reading goals:

I am challenging myself to read 50 books this year.

I will keep track of them on the Google map (see tab above), pinning the location(s) of the main setting(s).

Many of the books I read have multiple story lines, and very often, multiple settings. One I just finished, Every Secret Thing, by Susana Kearsley, had four. For that one, I tried to pick the two main locations. Most of the books I read are historical fiction, and of those, most tend to take place in Europe. I am sure that by the end of the year, the England on my Google Map will have sunk from so many pins. But, because I am trying to focus on reading exactly what I want to read this year, I am not trying to stay in the fifty states. However, it will be interesting to see at the end of the year just how many I end up visiting.

Even though it is only three weeks into January, I have enjoyed this challenge. Right now I am reading Firefly Beach, by Meira Pantermann, and it is set in a fictitious town in Maine. I am trying to figure out where best to pin it, so I have found myself paying more attention to the geographical clues that the author has included. Of course she probably put a note in the end about the real town that she based her story on…. LOL!
