  1. Hello. Good luck on the challenge.
    It looks like it's not for me. Already through my A to Z countries challenge (doing second edition in 2015 with 12 books) or through your blog I read broader. One thing is "going outside comfort zones" and another is "reading genres you don't like" (here: romance and ya). I'm writing this to let you know that I liked your challenge for those reasons. It was general enough to go broader, and if you wanted a romance, you could still read that, but you weren't forced.

    If you'd be interested in general challenge, reading global writers, check this challenge:


    1. Thank you, I like this particular challenge as it does make me read something different. Although general challenges do entice me as well.

  2. Some great choices Kathryn - especially Bitter Greens - I loved it!
