2012 Global Reading Challenge (Completed)


To widen my horizons, I decided to participate again this year in the Global Reading Challenge at the easy level.

The rules are simple: Read one novel from each of these continents in the course of 2012: Africa, Asia, Australasia/Oceania, Europe, North America, South America and The Seventh Continent (here one can either choose Antarctica or our own ´seventh´ setting, eg the sea, the space, a supernatural/paranormal world, history, the future, …etc.) From your own continent: try to find a country, state or author that is new to you.

According to my own rules I restricted myself to authors I have not read before and crime fiction books in its broadest sense. Today I am pleased to report that I have completed this challenge after having read:

I am delighted to have had the opportunity to read each and every one of these authors and books.

You can find out HERE other suggestions from fellow participants.

  1. Great! Good choice of books. I’m now even more motivated to read several of them. I wish that I could read mysteries in Spanish, but I unfortunately have to limit my reading of books written by South American authors to English translations. I’m so glad I found Inspector Espinosa of Brazil, and a friend is reading the books in Portuguese.

  2. Congratulations! I am feeling less than enthusiastic about South/Central America, but must try to find something not too harrowing/violent/macho…..
