Day 89: This beautiful girl called me up today to have a vent session. We discussed relationships, chronic ailments, school, and parents. Thank you, Carolyn, for a nice little vent session! I love you, and our relationship means a lot to me!
Then I got home and played Holly Housewife. I made chocolate chip cookie dough scones for my field trip to San Fransisco tomorrow! Now, I sleep.
So there it is, up there on the star in the top left of the picture: the 53rd – and last – book I've read on my Kindle for this project. But which of the shortlisted places and peoples not featured on the main list did it come from? Basque Country, Bermuda, Catalonia, Faroe Islands, Kurdistan or Native America?
Well, the voting was fierce.
Well, here we are. The 196th book (197th really, counting the Rest of the World choice) and the final post of the project that took over my life in 2012.
It's been the most extraordinary year. We've seen a story specially written for the blog from South Sudan, a book translated by a team of volunteers to enable me to read something from Sao Tome and Principe…
I didn't expect to be doing this. I thought when I finished my last post on 31 December 2012, that would be it – I would close the door on A Year of Reading the World and venture off to pastures new.
Then a few things happened. Firstly, after I finished the adventure, nearly 1,500 more of you signed up to follow the blog and it seemed a shame not to say 'hello' – hi, great to have your company.
