Reading Around the Globe


Welcome to Reading Around the Globe, a series here on Reader Voracious Blog geared at fostering a culture of understanding in the bookish community about access to books in various countries around the world. I wanted to take the time to help educate those that live in the US/UK/EU/AUS that the privilege we experience is not universal and thought that one of the most constructive ways that I can boost marginalized voices is to help share their experiences.

Using my above Tweet thread as a guide, I created a 14 question interview and asked the international book blogging community if they would be interested in sharing their experiences for a post. I received such an overwhelming response that what was originally planned as one post has grown into this series!

Each post will highlight a full interview with one international reader and I will update this master page to include links to each interview organized by country/region. The first interview post was published on August 19, 2018 and is now a weekly post happening on Saturdays!

    This is a very good idea!! I don’t have much experience since I’ve only started requesting books about one and a half month ago, but as an international reader, I’m very interested in learning about other people’s experiences.

    This is brilliant! Also I noticed you don’t have any scheduled interviews with someone from the african continent so I’m nominating myself! I’m not living in Mozambique right now, but I did grow up there and my family is still there. My 14 year old niece is the most recent family member to experience first hand the the troublesome life of a reader in Mozambique…
