Hosted by: Rose City Reader
Dates: January 1, 2019 - January 31, 2020
The idea is to read books by European authors or books set in European countries (no matter where the author comes from). The books can be anything – novels, short stories, memoirs, travel guides, cookbooks, biography, poetry, or any other genre. You can participate at different levels, but each book must be by a different author and set in a different country – it's supposed to be a tour.
- Books should be read between January 1, 2019 and January 31, 2020. If you participated in the 2018 European Reading Challenge, you can only count books read in January 2018 for one year -- either the end of the 2018 challenge or the start of the 2019 challenge -- you don't get to count one book for both challenges.
- You do not have to commit to your choices now; and you can change your mind about books at any time.
- Overlap with other challenges is allowed -- and encouraged!
- Re-reads count.
- Audiobooks count.
- E-books count.
- Self-published books count.
- There will be a page for linking your reviews. Reviews are not necessary, unless you are going for the prize, in which case only books reviewed count.
- If you do not have a blog, put your reviews or reports in a comment on the review list page.
- There will be a page for posting links to wrap-up posts.
