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. Central America), South America, two novels which are set in Antarctica plus a ‘wildcard’ novel (a novel from a place or period new to me). More details HERE.
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:
- Wife of the Gods, by Kwei Quartey (Ghana)
- Devil’s Peak, by Deon Meyer (South Africa)
- Inspector Singh Investigates: A Most Peculiar Malaysian Murder, by Shamini Flint (Malaysia)
- The Eye of Jade, by Diane Wei Liang (China)
- Diamond Dove, by Adrian Hyland (Australia)
- The Broken Shore, by Peter Temple (Australia)
- Blanco Nocturno de Ricardo Piglia (Argentina)
- Nadie ama a un policía de Guillermo Orsi (Argentina)
The Seventh Continent (History)
- The Saint-Florentin Murders, by Jean-François Parot (France, 1774)
- A Game of Lies, by Rebecca Cantrell (Germany, 1936)

Well done and thanks for the reminder that I’ve finished this level of the challenge too this week but I forgot to write a post.
Well done Jose
Well done, I have only read 7 of those so more ideas for the TBR pile!
Jose Ignacio: Congratulations. Participating in the Challenge provided you with a wide variety of reading.
Well done Jose Ignacio
