Around the World Reading Challenge, 2015

I invite everyone to join me in a reading challenge for 2015.  The rules are simple:

1)  Agree to read and blog about at least six books in 2015, with the following stipulations:

  • At least one book must be by a North American author.
  • At least one book must be by a South American author.
  • At least one book must be by a European author.
  • At least one book must be by an African author.
  • At least one book must be by an Asian author.
  • At least one book must be by an Australian author.

2)  The books may be fiction, nonfiction, poetry, drama–anything.

3)  The authors may be from any time period, dead or alive.

4)  If you want to participate, just indicate your interest, along with the link to your blog, in the comments section.

5)  After you have done a blog post for this challenge, indicate that you have done so in the comments section, include the name of the book and author, and provide a link to your post

That’s it!  Happy reading and blogging! Hope to read your posts next year!

  1. I have a question regarding islands and their associated continent. To which continent do Caribbean nation islands belong? And I assume New Zealand counts as part of continental Australia, while Indonesia is Asian.

    1. Good questions. I’m not an expert in geography, but I believe the Caribbeans are part of North America. Regarding NZ and Indonesia, I’d say you can classify them whatever way makes sense for you (for the purpose of this challenge, anyway.) 🙂
