We at Packabook invite you to take the trip of a lifetime (and by
that we mean we hope it lasts a lifetime!) - a travel fiction adventure we have decided to
call the One Country One Book journey....it's our own special kind of book
This is a journey around the world through some of
the most wonderful works of fiction we can find.
You are invited to join us each month as we travel to
a different country, reading one novel that is set there and exploring something of the country
itself. Novels so often reveal amazing stories about places that we never knew, and throughout our
journey we will unearth as many of these stories as we can.
Whether you have travelled to the countries we are
visiting our not, reading our book selections will, for a short time at least, make you feel as if
you had. And you will come away filled with the sights, sounds and stories of those who live
And once we have been all the way around the world?
Well, we'll just start again at the beginning and keep going, this time with a whole new selection
This is how it works.
Each week you will receive an email to accompany your
Week 1 - An introduction to the novel
Week 2 - A look at some of the key facts about the
country that relate to the book
Week 3 - Some travel ideas for the place itself -
just in case you find yourself going there, and to whet your appetite for travel plans in the
Week 4 - We return to the novel, look at some of the
reviews and then make plans for our next country.
We are hugely excited about this world trip and would
love you to join us. It doesn't matter when you start as the emails will begin when you do, and
then follow on week by week -- so you will never be left behind.
If you were to join us right now you would be
standing at the natural harbour in the town of Poole on England's south-coast, ready to begin the
journey. Your bags are packed, mainly with books of course, and your spirits high, as you prepare
to board the ferry that will take you across the ocean.
But where will the first stop be? Well - we're not
giving out any secrets here. To find out - you'll have to take the plunge and join us. If you are
