European Reading Challenge 2013




ROSE CITY READER (aka Gilion Dumas) is hosting a reading challenge. I reached the Five Star (Deluxe Entourage) level of participation already long before entering the challenge. Admittedly, I don't aim at winning the Jet Setter Prize because I loathe being pushed by competition, but I definitely want to read more diverse European literature. I adore the idea of making a literary tour of Europe. It's unlikely that I'll be able to read something from every single one of the fifty countries listed (some are really tricky), I'll try my best, though.

By the way, if you like, you can still join in. Just click above on the image, the headline or the link to Gilion's blog!
