This year I’m going to try two reading challenges: one that I expect to be easy, and one I expect to be a stretch.
First, I’m joining the 2013 Translation Challenge where the goal is to read 12 translated books during the year. This one I plan to meet quite easily. I hope not to just read Swedish crime fiction to meet this challenge, but that may very well happen.
Second, and more challengingly, I’m joining the 2013 Global Reading Challenge at the expert level. I plan on reading three books from each continent (and for Antarctica I plan on reading some historical fiction). My weak spots in my reading last year were fiction set in Africa, Asia, and Central and South America.
