I have always loved to read. While studying at university, I never got much time to pick up a book and just read it for fun. I’ll read pretty much anything, even though I still have a weakness for Young Adult (YA) fiction.
For graduation, I was given the gift of around 500 books by a mentor/good friend of mine. These books are all for my little e-reader, since carrying around 500 physical books is impossible, especially to the Peace Corps where I am limited to 100 pounds of luggage. I have also been downloading additional books to take with me since I will have a lot more time to read than I have had in a while.
In addition to those books I am also taking aLonely Planet Guide – one for Botswana and Namibia, so that I can plan a few trips once I’m able to travel!
I am using this page to document what books I have read every month during my service and will update it as often as I can. I have set a goal for myself, which is to read (at least) 200 books during my 27 months as a Peace Corps Volunteer. I know it seems like a lot, but I love to read and will actually have some time to dedicate to reading all of these books I have!
