Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader is hosting this Armchair Travelling mini-challenge and asks if we're ever tempted to go to a place after reading about it. I've been tempted twice in the recent past - I want to see Guernsey after reading The Guernsey LIterary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows and I want to go to Hong Kong after reading The Piano Teacher by Janice Y.K. Lee. I guess I'm tempted by places I knew nothing about before reading books set in them...

Oh, yes, I should have mentioned Guernsey in the intro post. I definitely wanted to go there after reading that book!

Thanks for participating in my mini-challenge!

You are doing really well so far! Keep it up!
