Last year I’ve made the extremist level in the Global Reading Challenge. I read three novels from each of these continents: Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, North America (incl.

This year I signed for the Medium Level which requires me to read two novels from each of these continents in the course of 2011: Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, North America, South America (including Central America wherever is most convenient) and the Seventh Continent, trying to find novels from fourteen different countries or states. I’ve read:
- Inspector Singh Investigates: A Most Peculiar Malaysian Murder, by Shamini Flint (Malaysia)
- The Eye of Jade, by Diane Wei Liang (China)
The Seventh Continent (History)
- The Saint-Florentin Murders, by Jean-François Parot (France, 1774)
- A Game of Lies, by Rebecca Cantrell (Germany, 1936)
