2012 Global Reading Challenge

Hi, everyone! Time for another 2012 Reading Challenge!!


This one is different than any of the others that I have joined so far, so I couldn't resist :)

This challenge is being hosted by Kerrie at Mysteries in Paradise.

Here are the details copied from Kerrie's blog:


2012 Global Reading Challenge

Sign In and 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.

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 (with a link to this page)

Your reading will take place in the calendar year 2012.

Return to this page to add the books you have read into the relevant Mr Linky - see the sections below

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

          1. I joined the Global Reading Challenge as well and that's how I landed on your blog.
            I'm really interested to see what others are reading for the challenge, so I will come back to your blog to learn more :)
            How interesting you already know your books to read for the seventh continent, I don't have a clue yet ;)
