Announcing the 2012 Global Reading Challenge

In 2012 the home of the Global Reading Challenge will be here and is now open for registration.

Use this challenge to expand your fiction reading horizons, whatever genre you read.

There are 3 challenge levels: Easy, Medium and Expert and you can choose to read 7, 14, or 21 books during the calendar year 2012.

You don't need to nominate the books you will read in advance, just follow your fancy, but you'll find yourself looking for books that fit your level of the challenge.

If you decide to join the challenge you can write a post on your blog like this one declaring your commitment, displaying the logo, and linking back to the Challenge page.

Finding relevant fiction is often easier than you think it is going to be.
Fellow challenge participants will enter links to what they have read and there are lists from previous years that you can consult.

Thanks so much, Kerrie.

I, for one, will join the global mystery book challenge, whether or not I officially join.

I'll be reading globally.

Have a great new year with very good books.

I am glad you are taking over the challenge next year, and after Christmas I will post the link on my blog.


And I wish you and Bob a merry Christmas! Thank you for your fine Christmas card.

And I am going to aim for the Australian women authors' challenge, in addition to the global one.

I'm so glad the challenge is back this year! I was almost done in 2011 and FORGOT about one of the continents, darn. I'm excited to read more books from around the world this year though. :)

Sorry I forgot to put the area for two of my books -- "I Am the Messenger" by Markus Zusak takes place in Australia, and "One Magic Moment" by Lynn Kurland takes place in England.

I'm almost done with the Easy Challenge -- maybe I should move up...

Kerrie said...

all fixed AlleluiaLa - perhaps the Expert level will be necessary to really challenge you

I just joined your challenge as well, I love to travel through my books (and in real life) so it's totally my cup of tea!
Thanks for organizing and happy reading!

This sounds like a great challenge! I'll add my blog's url after I add this challenge to my challenges page. Thanks for hosting this.

Hello, I decided to join your challenge. I'm really excited to read something beyond what I'd normally read... Just joined... Thanks for the challenge... :)

I think I kind of blew it with the challenge last year, but I think it's a good thing to keep in the back of your mind anyway.

I will take the easy challenge, as easy seems to be challenging enough for me!

And thanks for taking the challenge over, Kerrie!

Just added one to North America - I managed to use Newfoundland (Canadian province) as its own country, as the book took place when it was still it's own Dominion of under british rule(much like Ireland) - was a great read, highly recommend.

Shonna said...

Finished Europe. It always seems to be the easiest.

Kerrie said...

well done Shonna

seana said...

Just realized that I had already completed some of the challenge!

I added a fourth book to Asia, because it was such an amazing read that I have to encourage others to read it. In the Shadow of they Banyan comes from personal experience transformed to a story to honour those lost.

Hi Kerrie

Just discovered your site and will be a regular visitor from now on- it's excellent!

(Sorry I've messed up the links to my favourite book of July and was not attention seeking! Please could you delete them and I'll try again later!) Thanks.

Kerrie said...

All fixed Raven
