JUST for ORBIS TERRARUM challengers meme and givaway!!!

hey all you super-OT-challengers!!! (ONLY)

I have some fun stuff planned. I will be putting up a challenge meme and giveaway. Here is how to play:
1.) Each of your OT reviews that you have given the links to on the "your Orbis Terrarum travel thoughts!" Mr. linky will count. So put all your reviews up, each is worth one. Only functioning links will count...and I will go through and delete the duplicates.
2. Complete the OT meme and let me know, by commenting on this post, that will add one entry to your total.

So, what is the giveaway?? I am going to get books today at our local used bookstore (no worries, only gently used). So there will be multiple winners!!! I will let you know what the books are later by tomorrow or so.

I will give you a week to get as many links up as you can and to post your meme and get a comment on this post up, and remember this is really ONLY for Orbis Terrarum regular challengers!!!! Please play fair.

The Orbis Terrarum Challenge meme:

1.) What country do you always go back to in your travels (not just while reading for OT)?

2.) If you could visit 4 of the countries you have read about in your life (that you haven't been to yet), which would they be and why? (you can include the book that makes you want to visit if you remember)

3.) Have you ever dreamed about a country you have read about, that you have never actually traveled to- except in your dreams?

4.) In what ways has reading about different countries opened up your perspective about global issues?

5.) What countries have you felt your judgment was off about-after reading about that nation?

6.) Which is your favourite book that you would recommend for this challenge (you don't have to have read it during the challenge)?

7.) I am thinking about hosting again, for a full year next time starting in January, do you have any constructive criticism, is one book a month about right...more? less? Give me some thoughts.

8.) Anything else that you have been wanting to tell us all about? let us have it!
