Once finished my participation in the 2010 Global Reading Challenge, I welcome the 2011 Global Reading Challenge


The 2011 Global Reading Challenge is HERE. I have signed for the Medium Challenge. This Level requires me to read two novels from each of these continents in the course of 2011: Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, North America, South America (please include Central America where it is most convenient for you) and the Seventh Continent (here any participant can either choose Antarctica or his own ‘seventh’ setting, e.g. the sea, the space, a supernatural/paranormal world, history, the future – you name it). Try to find novels from fourteen different countries or states. From these pages I would like to encourage every reader to participate, it’s great fun and you can choose the level that may suit you best.

At this stage I’m trying to keep this challenge manageable in order to be able to reduce my TBR pile. I don’t know yet which books to choose, but from my shelves I can see, among others, at least:

Africa

Devil’s Peak by Deon Meyer (South Africa)

Wife of the Gods by Kwei Quartey ( Ghana)

Asia

Inspector Sing Investigates: A Most Peculiar Malaysian Murder by Shamini Flint (Malaysia)

Murder at Mt Fuji by Shizuko Natsuki (Japan)

Australasia

The Broken Shore by Peter Temple (Australia)

Cemetery Lake by Paul Cleave (New Zealand)

Europe

Entanglement by Zygmunt Miloszewski (Poland)

Three Seconds by Roslund and Hellström (Sweden)

North America

The Power of the Dog by Don Winslow (United Sates and Mexico)

Bury Me Deep by Megan Abbot (United States)

South America

The Lost Manuscript by Rubem Fonseca (Brazil)

No One Loves a Policeman by Guillermo Orsi (Argentina)

The Seventh Continent

Here I don’t have many in my shelves, but I have some historical crime fiction books in my Wish List.
