The 2011 Global Reading Challenge, hosted by Dorte, has three levels of participation. I choose the Medium Challenge which implies to read two novels from each of these continents in the course of 2011: Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, North America, South America and The Seventh Continent. (Try to find novels from fourteen different countries or states). Pretty much on track with just two books left TBR, but not all from fourteen different countries or states.

I’m stuck in South America Jose Ignacio. Well done on this achievement
Need any suggestion? Please ask.
José Ignacio – You’re doing so well with this challenge – impressive!
Thanks Margot. It’s a nice challenge, isn’t it?
Yes, very impressive. I like the way you have chosen letters of the alphabet for your North America visit.
I hadn’t noticed Maxine, now you mention. Was just thinking in adding some female writers.
