Book: Around the World in 80 Days
Movie: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Song: Leavin' on a Jet Plane - the Peter, Paul, and Mary version is my favorite - I even learned how to play it on my ukulele!

(Day 21 - #AllAroundTheWorld)

*Probably an obvious choice here, but I haven‘t seen it used yet. Jules Verne is at top left; his illustrator, Hippolyte Léon Benett is pictured just right of Verne. All of the images pictured are Benett‘s; he was the most prolific illustrator of Verne‘s books. If you‘ve read it, you‘ll recognize the scenes. If you haven‘t, maybe you saw the movie? Anyway—Great book & especially great for kids. ♥️

Another classic I‘m ashamed to say I haven‘t read, but it sounds like a great #adventure. #letstravelaugust

PaperbackPirate I read this 2 years ago & was surprised at what an easy read it is. I thought since it‘s a classic it would be bogged down with lengthy descriptions but it was lighthearted and fun! 3mo

Oh gosh, I've been through the adult section in the op shop, twice, then earlier this week I discovered the biography section....
I've gone back in today to just grab one book I saw earlier for a friend and now I've been stuck for hours in the teen/young adult section.
Only 2 small piles later......you know, for the kids...

Around the World in 80 Days is the lovely old cream colored book with the green tree on the spine.

I hate to admit that I had never read any Verne until this novel. What a delight! It‘s funny, informative, features some fascinating characters and a sort of chase. I was on the edge of my seat! A product of its time (1873), it also features some racist/colonialist views but still an entertaining story. https://cannonballread.com/2019/07/around-the-world-in-eighty-days-elcicco/

BarbaraBB Excellent review! I just read this one too and was equally surprised about how much I liked it! 4mo

I really really liked this one. And I didn‘t for a moment expect to since I was so annoyed by The Centre of the Earth!
But this is a book about a nerdy control freak (so like myself 😉) who has a tight schedule to travel the world in 80 days. It‘s about countries and travelling in the old days and it‘s a bit of an adventure. I hope it fits the #middlegrade prompt for #Booked2019 since everyone I know read it at that age! #1001books

Cinfhen Works for me!! Glad u like it 🤓 4mo

In the year 1872, the house No. 7 Saville Row, Burlington Gardens-the house in which Sheridan died, in 1814-was inhabited by Phileas Fogg, Esq., one of the most singular and most noticed members of the Reform Club of London, although he seemed to take care to do nothing which might attract attention.

I have no idea why I have put this particular #1001book off for so long. A fast-paced adventure, dripping with cliches and humor, that was just a fun way to spend an afternoon. I decided to do audio because JIM DALE, and this recording is very cool with added music and sound effects to compliment a master of narration.

However. Wtf is this hot air balloon doing on the cover? 🤔

Clare-Dragonfly Aren‘t they in a hot-air balloon for a bit? 12mo
sprainedbrain @Clare-Dragonfly Not at all in this book... Phileas thought about it briefly once when they missed a boat, but dismissed the idea. I kept waiting for balloon travel, but nope. 😂 12mo
Clare-Dragonfly Weird! I‘m sure the abridged illustrated version I read a million times as a kid had a hot-air balloon section. At least an illustration. I obviously need to read the real thing! 12mo
sprainedbrain @Clare-Dragonfly I‘ve done some googling, and I guess some movie versions had balloon travel, as well as a cartoon version. Plus, Verne had another story with balloon travel... I‘m still so confused about this cover. 😅 12mo
ValerieAndBooks I didn‘t realize this was a #1001Books — I have a paperback copy that my aunt and uncle gave me many years ago and I‘ve never read it! And yes there‘s a hot air balloon on my cover copy 😂 12mo

This is a sort of 19th century version of The Amazing Race. Wonderful little tidbits of colourful history and plenty of misadventure made this a fun and interesting read.

I read Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea as a child but for some reason did not go on to read any more of Jules Verne‘s works. I finally got around to reading this and it was a delight. I loved following Phileas Fogg and his French manservant Passepartout on their adventures traveling the globe. It makes me want to pick up some more of his books.

mabell I checked out all the Vernes I could from the library when I was young. I couldn't get enough! Around the World in 80 days was definitely one of my favorites. ❤️ 2y
