Read Around the World: Thailand

We spent the month of June visiting Thailand with all of you. Two months ago we converted our Read Around the World feature into an informal group challenge and invited you all to join us as we make our way around the world. We took nominations and used the randomizer to plan our itinerary. Thailand was the second stop on our group reading tour. I’m not going to lie, I found this month quite a challenge in terms of selecting a book and if not for one extremely helpful person on Litsy, I would have failed the task of completing a book.

Join us as we explore literary Thailand and find out which book I selected and which books our participants (across Litsy, this blog, and Instagram) read this month.  Read more

I pass the baton over to her and she will take it over from here. Please visit her blog and check out her recommendations. Make sure to scroll down and see her photos at the bottom! Read more

Our next stop in our world tour of literature is Spain. Join us as we explore some of what Spain has to offer in terms of literature and find out which books we selected. Spain is another one of those countries that has produced so much excellent and widely read literature that we won’t claim that there is only one book that represents the country. Instead we will each discuss one selected book and we hope you help us create a list of your favorite Spanish books and authors.  Read more
