2013 European Reading Challenge


A few months ago I joined Rose City 2012 Reader's European Reading Challenge. This challenge ends today and I didn't do very well. I read five books and that was it, all of them in December.

Today I'm joining the 2013 European Reading Challenge and I expect to do a lot better this time.

  1. ? I just looked at your best of 2012 post, and there were plenty of European books on that ;)

    1. Tony, officially I only read five books for the ERC2012. The others were just part of my normal reading :)

  2. Well, you're only supposed to count one book per country, so all of that amazing Portuguese literature counts as 1 (one) for the Challenge.

    My 2012 count would have been 15, which is unusually high, but almost any year for the past who knows how many I would have read something from the UK, France, and a German-language country, with some combination of Spain, Italy and Russia getting me to five.

  3. Thanks for signing up for the European Reading Challenge! Sorry it took me a while to get here to visit. Happy reading!

    You read some really great books. I am pleased to find your blog. I'm a big Philip Roth fan, so I am going to go read your Roth posts now.

    1. Gilion, I should thank you for starting ERC, giving me the encouragement to expand my readings into other countries.

      Yep, I've written quite a lot about Roth. Right now I'm taking a break from him, but later on in the year I hope to review the 'Nemesis' tetralogy.
