2017: The Year in Books

2017 was a year I would quite happily burn into the ground. If it was a town I had invaded, I would plow salt into its fields and then burn the fields, and if they wouldn’t burn, I would wait until they had grown back a bit, and then burn them down again. So. There’s that. If 2017 was terrible, and it was, in all kinds of big and planet-destabilizing ways, I also found that it was terrible in small ways as well. (HA not that I’m literally just complaining.) One of them means quite a lot to me: the books that I read.

Around the World in Books

A photo posted by Faraway Places in Books (@farawayplacesbooks) on Sep 11, 2016 at 8:18pm PDT Hi. I’m reading a book from every country in the world. I began with Germany. The most recent review: How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia by Mohsin Hamid (Pakistan).  Below, a list of all the countries. Want an update every time I finish one? I swear, it’s worth it.
