Fast race, turn of the century style
Around the World in Eighty Days - Jules Verne, Brian W. Aldiss,Michael Glencross

That was awesome! I love when this classics turn out to be addictive page-turners. Even though I knew Fogg had to triumph, I admit I had several moments of true anxiety, so double points.

 

Into the podium of Verne's favorites it goes. Now, what do I do with this furious raging of my wanderlust?

Round The World In Eighty Days - John Kennett

He lived alone, and, so to speak, outside of every social relation; and as he knew that in this world account must be taken of friction, and that friction retards, he never rubbed against anybody.

....which takes me to: "New Orleans Square Station" Sq. 14 - Read a book that involves overseas travel or that has a suitcase on the cover." 

 

Well, as BL-Opoly is coming to an end, I might as well follow my theme of Verne reads and read Around the World in Eighty Days for this square. It just screams overseas travel.

 

I have an audiobook version for this. :D
