Hosted by: The Introverted Reader
Dates: 7 January - 31 December, 2012

  • The challenge goal is to read any book that's been translated from its original language into another language that you're comfortable reading.
  • Any genre, format, or age range is accepted.
  • Crossovers with other challenges are OK.
  • You don't need a blog to participate; link up through Good Reads, Library Thing, etc.
  1. Beginner: Read 1-3 books in translation
  2. Conversationalist: 4-6
  3. Bilingual: 7-9
  4. Linguist: 10-12
✷ I'm signing up at the "Conversationalist" level, so I'll be reading 4-6 books.
