I like to think of books as mini vacations that don't cost an awful lot. It was that thought that inspired this challenge. (Thanks to Lisarenee for the original idea)

Duration- You choose!

This challenge let's you take your own mini vacation via books, so find books that take place in destinations you'd like to visit. Make sure to pick your destination(s) and the duration of your journey.

Day tripper = 1 book
Weekend getaway = 3 books
Week trip = 7 books
Month long getaway = 8 to 31 books
Around the World in 360 days = 32 + books

I think you get the picture. You can have more than one destination or just read books which touch on different tourist spots but in the same country/city. You decide. Just pick your destination(s) and set sail, take flight, etc., but whatever you do make sure you take your book and have fun.

Note: In 2011 we started this challenge, and we've now decided to start a new thread for the challenge to freshen it up a bit! You can find the old thread HERE

Suzanne (esmerelda1) | 1088 comments Nothing But Reading Challenges
Vacation Destination Reading Challenge
Duration:
6/21/2019 - Til Done!

Progress: 0 out of 32+
Day tripper = 1 book
Weekend getaway = 3 books
Week trip = 7 books
Month long getaway = 8 to 31 books
Around the World in 360 days = 32 + books

I like to think of books as mini vacations that don't cost an awful lot. It was that thought that inspired this challenge. (Thanks to Lisarenee for the original idea)

Duration- You choose!

This challenge let's you take your own mini vacation via books, so find books that take place in destinations you'd like to visit. Make sure to pick your destination(s) and the duration of your journey.

I think you get the picture. You can have more than one destination or just read books which touch on different tourist spots but in the same country/city. You decide. Just pick your destination(s) and set sail, take flight, etc., but whatever you do make sure you take your book and have fun.
