Global Reading Challenge

I've found the 2012 edition of the Global Reading Challenge and will join.

The rules here are different than the one I did last year in that this one limits the reading to fiction. That is a bit disappointing, but still workable. (I amend that as I just looked at last year's and it was supposed to be fiction, but I didn't catch that, so didn't do it and never got reprimanded. But since I didn't finish anyway, I guess the point is moot. ;->)

I'm going to go for the Expert level again, which is 3 from each continent.

Read three novels from each of these continents in the course of 2012:
North America
South America (please include Central America where it is most convenient for you)
The Seventh Continent (here you can either choose Antarctica or your own ´seventh´ setting, eg the sea, the space, a supernatural/paranormal world, history, the future – you name it).

Select novels from twenty-one different countries or states if possible. (For Australasia, selecting a different state for your last book will be acceptable)


  1. I joined the Global Reading challenge as well, that's how I landed on your blog. I'm interested to see what others are reading for the challenge so I will come back to your blog to learn more :)

  2. Thanks Cessie. I'll be checking you out. I love seeing others' takes on books, especially those with different life experience which you seem to have. Your life looks like a real adventure. Very cool.
