Brit Tripping 

Co hosted by Sandy and Amy


Beginning February 4, 2018 




This year we’ll follow the Roman Road through England with the intent of reading a book from each of the 45 counties with a few extra trips to London. At the beginning of each week we’ll check in and post our route. Pack your bags and kindles and audiobooks and get ready to Brit Trip!

One of the challenges we discovered in planning was that the counties change frequently and in many places overlap with other counties and then there’s some disagreement on what is and isn’t a county. 


General rules:

  • Join in for as much as you want. This is supposed to be fun.
  • Let us know if you are in so we know who we are caravanning with!
  • Rereads are allowed.
  • No page number minimum.
  • Please follow us on Goodreads. We’ll be shelving our Brit Tripping reads on their own shelf. To see   what counties are included you need to go MumtoTwo’s page and click on SETTINGS next to the   search box and check the box for RECOMMENDER. Then at the bottom of the beige box click on   CLOSE.
  • The expected itinerary will be posted every Sunday.
  • The schedule for the year is posted below

Join a bus:

• The Detectives (Mystery reading)
• The Rebels (Mixed genre reading)

All those who join us for our adventures will earn a rank based on number of counties completed.







And the final level is The Bertram Wooster. That is earned by reading one book set in England of any genre but failing spectacularly at all other challenges. A good attitude must be maintained despite numerous hardships. Employing a Gentleman’s Gentleman is optional but encouraged. Bonus points awarded if you are accidentally engaged multiple times during the year.
