Denmark for the following:

That catches me up with posts for all applicable retroactive books.

Revisiting Europe/England x2 (again)!

10. H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald

Quotable:
“.....the world is full of signs and wonders that come, and go, and if you are lucky you might see them. Once, twice. Perhaps never again.” - Helen Macdonald

11. The World According to Bob: The Further Adventures of One Man and His Street-wise Cat by James Bowen.

Quotable:
“If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve man but deteriorate the cat. Mark Twain” - James Bowen

North America/USA
Regions Visited: 02
Countries Visited: 06

12. Caroline: Little House, Revisited by Sarah Miller

I enjoyed this one but the beginning chapters dragged and seemed overly detailed. Still, it made me feel nostalgic and longing to reread Little House in the Big Woods.

Quotable:
"Be thankful for what is given. Caroline heard the words in her mother’s voice. No matter if it is not enough, be thankful.” - Caroline Ingalls/Sarah Miller

Diane- If you see this message, could you please delete my name from the current Circumnavigator Readerboard? It currently says: LA - 1 Region / 5 Countries. Thank you. (Please continue to keep me listed as a Rogue Traveler on the Readerboard though.)

After giving it some thought, I decided my long-term plan will be to start over each year with one new Rogue Traveler list, instead of trying to update/maintain 2 separate topics. One thread is enough for me to keep up with. :-) I know that means I won't be tracking my continuing progress over the years but at least I'll update one topic consistently.
