January country – let’s have your votes!

Travel Novels

…and whatever happened to Laos, Oregon and Tyne and Wear?

Well, I have to apologise for being so late with our new additions to the Packabook site.  I have been doing a lot of traveling and had far less computer time than I was anticipating…but I’m pleased to say I’m on track to upload the pages for Laos, Oregon and Tyne and Wear by the end of the year!! So far I’ve come across around 50 novels set in Oregon, which I think is a pretty impressive starting score for the state. Though mostly it’s due to the work of two extremely prolific writers. I look forward to sharing them with you soon.

But now, let’s open the voting for our next round of additions. You are invited to vote for one country, one U.S. state and one English county from the list at the end of this post.

These votes will be added to you previous votes on the tally boards, which are here.

COUNTRIES
Albania – 1
Argentina – 1
Canada – 1
Israel and Palestinian Territories – 1
Kenya – 1
Myanmar/Burma – 1
Seychelles – 1
Sri Lanka – 1
Qatar – 1
Vanuatu – 1

US STATES
Alabama – 1
Arizona – 2
Florida – 1
Kansas – 1
New York City – 1
Ohio – 1
South Dakota – 1

UK COUNTIES
Kent – 1
Devon – 1
West Midlands – 1

If you are still keen on your previous choices, you can vote for them again, giving them a greater chance. But if you’d like to switch to a new destination, you can give those places your latest vote instead.

And if this is your first time voting, then welcome! I hope you will remain with us for a long time as I gradually build up this literary map of the world. If you are a first time voter, you might find it useful to read this previous post explaining what this is all about! But after that – make sure you pop back over here to put your vote in the comments…..

Here’s the full (long!) list of choices below – where will we head to next? Let me know your votes in the comments….Remember – one country, one U.S. State and one English county…voting closes December 21st!

    Thanks Kirsten – I’m kind of hoping for Myanmar myself…with so much going on there, time to get ourselves an education through stories I think. But I don’t get a vote, so we’ll have to see…good luck!
