The Transatlantic Book Project: US Round One Recap


Last November Rachel @ Confessions of a Book Geek and I launched the Transatlantic Book Project. The whole concept revolves around the idea that we could read and annotate a book and then pass it on to other bloggers to annotate as well. Rachel and I each chose a book (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender) for the project, invited some of our favorite bloggers in the US and UK to participate, and the Transatlantic Book Project was born. Recently both books completed their journey for the first round. For bloggers in the US, we had the pleasure of reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone first. In total, the book traveled over 7000 miles around the US. Take a look below for links to all the US bloggers’ posts about their experiences with the book.

US Stops for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone:

  1. Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense
  2. Cristina @ Girl in the Pages
  3. Katie @ Bookish Illuminations
  4. Lindsey @ Bring My Books
  5. Stefano @ Caught Read Handed

So where is Harry right now? I mailed HP a couple of weeks ago to Charnell @ Reviews from a Bookworm and it just arrived! It will now travel around to each UK blogger before arriving back to Rachel.

Order Harry Will Be Traveling in the UK:

  1. Charnell @ Reviews from a Bookworm
  2. Chrissi @ Chrissi Reads
  3. Ashley @ Nose Graze
  4. Trish @ Between My Lines
  5. Rachel @ Confessions of a Book Geek

Before I sent out HP, I took a few photos to share with you of what we’ve been up to. It was such a delight flipping through the book to see what kind of notes other bloggers had left. Click any image below to enlarge.

If you’d like to follow Harry as he travels across the UK or Ava Lavender in the US, be sure to follow the Twitter #tabookproject.

  1. You read my mind, Alicia! YOU’RE SCARY GOOD. I swear I was just wondering the other day what’s happening with #tabookproject. Well, have no fear Lonna for it seems like all is well, and the project is going quite smoothly. Would also love to hear you final thoughts on what went well, what didn’t, and who had the best handwriting…when the latter half of the project is complete. =)

      1. It’s so cool when we can refer to books by character names and it’s totally understood. When you welcome Ava home, I’m sure an inspiration will present itself for a post, and I’ll read about it then. Great project again! No wonder you’re a bit burnt, Alicia!
