The guest blog mentioned in our last post has turned into a regular gig blogging over at Novel Adventurers. Beth will now be writing about books and travel at every other Wednesday. 

But that's not the only day to stop by--the Novel Adventurers are a group of talented, intrepid writers who share stories of their travels every weekday.  The group includes experts on South America, India, Iran, Italy and more!

Today she starts her regular blogs with a piece on a detective book series set in Thailand. When Dan and Beth were living on Koh Tao the year before last, Beth devoured these books by John Burdett about Bangkok detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep.  Go on over to the blog to check out the full story.

Happy Reading!
Today, AlaskanKangaroo's Beth blogs over on Novel Adventurers ( about a festival that we came across by accident when traveling through the minority villages of southern Guizhou Province, back in 2009. 

If you've got time, take a look both at Beth's post, and also at the other posts written by the site's bloggers. They're all novelists who love travel--and, of course, adventure--and they tell great stories there every weekday.
