Give us a link to your Orbis Terrarum Travels:



We'd love to keep in contact about your books, and journey! Even if it is not a full review, if it is just thoughts or something you learned during your Orbis Terrarum reading. Link here for the benefit of all of our travels...we'd love to hear what you are finding exciting.

hey.. did you like the little maps? I got them from Wikipedia for each country.. thought it gave a good perspective about the part of the world I was talking about..:)

rajk said...

Hi, I've just joined. I know I'm a little behind but I'm hoping to catch up soon. By the end of May I aim to read two books and write about them on my blog. Happy reading!!

Oops! I think I've messed up your system. I tried to add the countries to my past entries and they seem to be appearing twice. I'm sorry.

ideru said...

thank you for visiting my blog and for the warm welcome :D

Lizzy Siddal said...

I know Rome is in Italy and that the Congo is in Africa but the countries I've given in my links relate to the author's nationality. That's what I'm supposed to do, isn't it?

rajk said...

Hi, I have a question. What do I do if I make a mistake while leaving my link on the list? I tried to go back and correct in but couldn't. e.g. I gave the link to my blog but not to the specific post about the book I read. What can I do about it?

bethany said...

lizzy sidal- Author's nationality is correct, you are doing it right.

rajk- I can delete it, and you can re-enter it if you just let me know which one it is.

rajk said...

It is #79(Talkative Man). Thanks Bethany. Once it is deleted I can post the correct link.

bethany said...

rajk- I did it, deleted.

Have a great week!!!!

Just finished 'Lord of the Flies' by William Golding. It is simply amazing. A must read.

Rachel said...

Just finished Boris Akunin's "Murder on the Leviathan", which was very good and now am in the Peruvian jungles with Mario Vargas Llosa in "The Storyteller". I'm really enjoying this reading challenge, my first!

Mrs. B. said...

R-Lo said...

I've just finished visiting España and France, two of my favorite countries in real life and in fiction, as part of my OT tour. Not sure yet where I'll be headed next, but I'll send a "postcard" when I get there!

Tammy said...

I'm so bad, I just today realized that I should have been linking my reviews. I linked 3, which then made me realize that I'm further behind in my reviewing than I thought! Almost done reading, I'm on my last book now -- looking forward to OT 2009!

Richard said...

My second to last OT book review is done. That leaves me 11 days to read and write up the final one. In other words, I have to get from Mexico to Iraq or Russia and back home in less than two weeks' time. It's all armchair travel, of course, but yikes!

rajk said...

Hi! I just posted my (supershort) review for my 7th OT Challenge book. I've read all nine but will only be posting the reviews over the next few days. Is there a deadline or is it on until 31st of Dec.?

rajk said...

Okay!! So I posted the links to my Book 8 and 9 too!! So I am done!!
All in all, it was a great ride!

Karen said...

I've just posted my review for my last book so challenge completed! Yay!! Thank you so much for hosting - I have really enjoyed the ride and plan to participate again next year.

Richard said...

I finally finished--one hour before the last day if I'm not mistaken! Thanks again for hosting this, Bethany, and props to everybody for all the interesting reviews.
