Around the World in 80 Books Challenge


Just heard about this challenge and decided to try it as well. This one is just fiction, but has a few sub-challenges to it as well.
Since I read 115 fiction books last year, I think 80 is doable. 

Here are the details:
  • You will collect gems for each part of the challenge you complete.

The red gem
  • Read 80 books in 2014. They can be any fiction genre and any length, as long as they are published and are available to purchase.
  • Since this challenge is about going round the world, read books set in different locations of the world. For example, there shouldn't be two books set New York. 
  • Complete this mini-challenge and collect the rare red gem.
   The green gem   

  • Read at least one book set on each continent –Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, South America and Antarctica. If you need help finding books set in Antarctica check out this Goodreads List.
  • Complete this mini-challenge and collect all 7 green gems.
   The yellow gem   
  • Read our selected book of the month. There will be one each month. Complete this mini-challenge and collect the 12 yellow gems.
The blue gem

  • The coveted blue gem will be awarded to all those who complete all the mini-challenges and collect all the green, yellow and red gems. 
Please note:
  • You don’t have to select your books ahead of time. Feel free to add them as you go along. Also feel free to change them if you list them and then change your mind at a later date.
  • The books listed can also be used in other challenges.
  • Feel free to join in at anytime, as long as the books are read in 2014.
  • Book formats include paperbacks, hardbacks, ebooks and audiobooks.
  • This is a fiction only challenge.
  • Anyone can join in. You don't need a blog. Simply leave a comment below with the name you will be using for the challenge and add the link to your Goodreads, Amazon, or any other site you use to track your books.
  • Every month, there will be an Around-The-World-In-80-Days post where everyone can post links to their book reviews and discuss the books they've read.
