European Reading Challenge

European Reading ChallengeRead books set in European countries or books by European authors. The books can be of any genre—fiction, nonfiction, novels, short stories, memoirs, travel guides, cookbooks, biography, poetry, whatever. You can participate at different levels, but each book must represent a different country—either written by an author from a different country or set in a different country, no two books from the same country. Goal: FIVE STAR (DELUXE ENTOURAGE): Read at least five books by different European authors or books set in different European countries.

  1. Possession by A. S. Byatt (United Kingdom)
  2. Book 2
  3. Book 3
