Around the World in 80 Days Mini Reading Challenge: Africa

Around the World Post Graphic
Today’s destination is: Africa

Africa, the world’s second-largest and second-most populous continent, is a land of stunning diversity, rich history, and vibrant cultures. With its vast landscapes stretching from the Mediterranean Sea to the southern tip of the continent, Africa encompasses a myriad of ecosystems, ranging from dense rainforests to expansive deserts.

Home to over 50 countries and more than a billion people, Africa boasts a tapestry of languages, traditions, and ethnicities, making it one of the most culturally dynamic regions on the planet.

From ancient civilizations like Egypt to the modern metropolises of Johannesburg and Lagos, Africa is a continent of contrasts, where ancient traditions intertwine with contemporary influences, offering a unique and captivating tapestry for exploration and discovery.

We’re presenting a selection of sapphic books set in Africa, but you are not obligated to read one of the titles below. Find any sapphic book set in Africa. Read it. Submit a form to enter to win a $75 Amazon gift card. Please note the individual countries, cities, and locales in the region can be counted separately for the challenge.

Happy travels!
