2013 Global Reading Challenge


Hi, everyone! Time for a 2013 Reading Challenge!!



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

Here are the details copied Kerrie's blog:
2013 Global Reading Challenge

Sign In and Challenge Rules



As in the past, the 2013 Global Reading Challenge (2013GRC) 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 2013.
When you are ready to add books to the Mr Linkies that will be provided, return to this blog and look for the 2013 Global Reading Challenge icon in the right hand margin. That will have a link to the most recent page for the meme.

You may like to consult Global Reading Challenges for 2011 and 2010 and 2012 for suggestions of books.

Please advertise the  2013 Global Reading Challenge (2013GRC) on your blog.

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