In 2012, Ann Morgan set off on a journey to read her way around the world. She documented her experience of reading books from 196 independent countries (plus one extra territory chosen by her readers) on her blog, A Year of Reading the World. Earlier this year, she published her book based on this journey, Reading the World: Confessions of a Literary Explorer (also known as The World Between Two Covers in the US).
Ann’s kept busy, from promoting Reading the World, to writing another book — her novel, Beside Myself — to continuing her effort to read books from different countries and encouraging others to do the same. Here, she talks about connecting with readers around the world, the effort to translate into English more works that deserve a wider audience, and her unique blogger-to-author experience.
I chatted with Ann in February when her book, Reading the World, was released in the UK.
