I had signed up for the European Reading Challenge hosted by Rose City Reader last year. The aim was to read at least 5 books set in 5 different European countries (or written by 5 different writers from various European countries). I have successfully completed the challenge.
Here are the countries I visited:
Albania: The Successor by Ismail Kadare
Austria: The Quiet Twin by Dan Vyleta
Czechoslovakia: Amerika by Franz Kafka
England: A Coffin for Dimitrios by Eric Ambler
France: The Paris Enigma by Pablo De Santis
Germany: The Murder Farm by Andrea Maria Schenkels
Ireland: Room by Emma Donoghues
Northern Ireland: Sir John Macgill’s Last Journey by Freeman Wills Crofts
Poland: The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne
Russia: The Geographer’s Library by Jon Fasman
Scotland: Black and Blue by Ian Rankin
Spain: The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafan
Turkey: Orlando by Virginia Woolf
It was fun doing the challenge and I am signing up for it this year too.
