Other Reading Challenges in 2011


Besides the reading challenges listed in my sidebar a number of challenges sounds very appealing to me:

My problem is that I’ve already signed for quite a number of challenges and I presume I won’t be able to make it. However, before my GP have a serious look at it, I’ll participate in these challenges, although I won’t make it official, at least yet.

For the Italian challenge I’m currently reading Involuntary Witness by Gianrico Carofiglio and I have in my TBR pile: Marco Vichi – Death in Florence, at least five Montalbanos by Andrea Camilleri, and a couple of Lucarellis. For a total of nine books set in Italy.

For the British Challenge I have: Mark Billingham – Bloodline, Ann Cleeves – White Nights, Val McDermid – A Place of Execution, Phillip Kerr – If the Dead Rise Not, three Rankins, and I have read so far this year Belinda Bauer – Darkside. For a total of eight.

Besides I’m planning to buy at least: RJ Ellory – A Quiet Believe in Angels, Elly Griffiths – The Crossing Places, Craig Russell – Lennox and a Martin Edwards’ Lake District, at least as soon as I lift my ban on new acquisitions.

  1. >I admire your enthusiasm! And, of the novels you've chosen that I have read, I think these are excellent choices. I hope you enjoy them.

  2. >I keep seeing challenges that I like the sound of too but I have stopped myself from joining any more as it is already becoming pretty hard to manage the ones I'm in.

  3. >Great British novels. I could join the British reading challenge, I suppose, but I prefer challenges that ARE challenges for me, and I suspect that at least half of my TBR books are British. Reading eight Danish crime novels would be more of a challenge 😀
