I’m a 32 year-old Australian bibliophile and travel nut who loves the thrill of a challenge and travelling vicariously through reading.
The Literary Nomad is a blog chronicling my attempt to read my way around the globe: 230 countries, 1 book per country, however long it takes me! I am using the Lonely Planet’s The Travel Book list of 230 countries as “my itinerary”. Like a true nomad I want to be free to move from one corner of the globe to the other but I still want some sort of rule to guide my journey so I am also using The Travel Book as my destination decider. Each time I finish reading a book set in a particular country, I will open The Travel Book to any random page and whatever country is featured on that page is the next one I will read about. The other rules of my challenge are located under the heading “Challenge rules”.
