Zuzana | 216 comments I've been updating my 2013 and 2014 Frequent Flyer threads regularly but my Circumnavigator quest totally slipped my mind.

Nevermind, I added all the books I read since my joining GR in October 2011 and from now on I'll update this thread every month starting in June 2014.

Zuzana | 216 comments Diane, can I count Outer Space/ Alien Planets/ Fantasy Realms as 1 destination or are scifi and fantasy books totally irelevant? So far I didn't list them at all (unless at least one part of the book is set on Earth). I know that theoretically you can put them under the author's resident country but it seems dumb to me. I would feel foolish to list The Hobbit under England. Doesn't seem right somehow.
