Planeta.com viewers are voting this month for the 2006 Book of the Year Awards in a variety of categories â€” Moon Living Abroad In Nicaragua, my most recent title (written with co-author Randy Wood), is nominated for best “PLACE-BASED GUIDEBOOK” along with several other Latin America titles. The other categories (Food, Environment, Travel) feature new titles that I can’t wait to check out. In the meantime, viewers can vote online â€” that means you. Be sure to read all the nominee descriptions first. Better yet â€” buy all the books, travel with each them to Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Argentina, then make a fully informed decision. (Or just vote.) For more on Living Abroad in Nicaragua, click this official moon.com page, or check out GoToNicaragua.com.
