Deborah Pickstone | 4 comments I have to be a Frequent Flyer - I am a magpie reader :)

I will begin in England as my country of origin, then go to New Zealand as that is where I am. Then I'll go where the spirit moves me.....

I am putting in books read within 2016 so far and will then add as I read.

"North America, the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Oceania/Australia. You are welcome to visit Antarctica during your travels, but this is not required since there are few books from here."
