Widen your reading horizons: Join the 2012 Global Reading Challenge

This post is a reminder for those who have been vacillating about joining GRC2012, or maybe you have never heard of it and are looking for something that will help you extend your reading..

Challenge Rules


As in the past, the Global Reading Challenge (GRC) challenges you to expand your reading boundaries, go where you haven't been before, move a little outside your comfort zone.

You may read any genre so long as the books are fiction.

Your reading will take place in the calendar year 2012.

You may like to consult Global Reading Challenges for 2011 and 2010 for suggestions of books.

Decide which level you will attempt, although you can change that later if you wish.
Use the Mr Linky to sign up with your name, the level you intend to attempt, and your blog URL.

Feel free to include the logo in your blog posts or on your blog.

You might be interested in creating your own map showing where you use World66
My final post for GRC 2010 shows you what it can look like.


The Easy Challenge

Read one novel from each of these continents in the course of 2012:

Africa, Asia, Australasia/Oceania, Europe, 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).

From your own continent: try to find a country, state or author that is new to you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Medium Challenge

Read two novels from each of these continents in the course of 2012:

Africa, Asia, Australasia/Oceania, Europe, North America, South America (please include Central America where it is most convenient for you), The Seventh Continent

Try to find novels from fourteen different countries or states.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Expert Challenge

Read three novels from each of these continents in the course of 2012:

Africa, Asia, Australasia/Oceania, Europe, North America, South America (please include Central America where it is most convenient for you), The Seventh Continent

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

I'm in for the 2012 Global Reading Challenge, and sign up for the Medium level.

I don't have a URL so I can't sign up via Linky.

I'll send in information on what I'm reading.

That will work just fine Kathy

I can't commit to completing the challenge at any level, but I will certainly start out, by linking my global reviews, and see how I get on through the year!

Well done for continuing this challenge, Kerrie.
