This week’s Weekly Geeks question is about globe trotting through our reading (What fun!). I love reading about Asia, but I’m longing to add some west African countries to my have-read list as well. I’ve had a few books set in Cameroon on my wish list for more than a year now (I visited Cameroon … wow, it’s been a decade ago now). I also enjoy books set in Ireland and England, and all of Scandinavia.

At first glance, when I saw my map, I thought it looked OK. Obviously I’d like to see more of it filled in, but I’m still working on it. But then I saw the statistics associated with it: 39 countries (17 percent). Yikes. Not good at all.
I did make an effort to think back through all I’ve read and attempt to be thorough, but I’m sure I’ve missed some — places I have read about but forgot to mark.
What countries have you visited in your reading?
