Journal Entry 2 by hobbit at Poughkeepsie, New York USA on Monday, January 24, 2022
This book is traveling with an "Around the World" bookbox featuring a collection of books from different places, and will act as the journal for the bookbox. Here's the thread where the bookbox rules and signups are.

This is a replacement for a previously stalled version of the bookbox. Here's a link to the previous journal.

The bookbox begins with these 12 books (and, of course, the journal book):
Africa:
. Nigeria - Songs of Enchantment
. (many countries) - The African Lookbook
Asia:
. Iran - The Sky of Red Poppies
. Vietnam - The Best We Could Do
Europe:
. France - The Lady and the Unicorn
. England - Guenevere Queen of the Summer Country
North America:
. Guatemala - 01-01-00
. several (could be used for NA, SA, Africa, Asia, Europe) - 100 Women Who Shaped World History
Pacifica / Oceana:
. New Zealand - The Eel That Slept
. Samoa - Ola
South America:
. Columbia - Love in the Time of Cholera
. several (could be used for SA or NA) - Three Weeks with My Brother

I note that some of these may be used for other countries also, depending on whether you count where the action takes place (and some move from country to country), where the author was born, or where the author lived / lives. Like life, books don't always fall easily into one slot.

Anyway, here goes - may the box travel safely and may all of the participants find something they enjoy!
