As in the past, the 2014 Global Reading Challenge (2014GRC) challenges you to expand your reading boundaries, go where you haven’t been before, move a little outside your comfort zone. You may read any genre so long as the books are fiction. Decide which level you will attempt, although you can change that later if you wish. Read more here.
You still have time to participate in this challenge. From my side I was determined to participate this year at The Easy Challenge level but under the condition of counting only with authors unknown, at least to me.
