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. I'm trying the Easy Challenge. We'll see where it leads. If you want to see the details of the Medium and Expert Challenge, check out this post.
Use the Mr Linky on the sign-up post 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.
The Easy Challenge
Read one novel from each of these continents in the course of 2012:
South America (please include Central America where it is most convenient for you)
From your own continent: try to find a country, state or author that is new to you.
Sound like fun? I just realized the number of books I read that are set outside of our country, so I thought I would give this a go.
