I’m constantly looking to expand my reading and this time around I don’t mean just different genres. I mean reading about different people, cultures, and places too.
Finally, from this year on, I’m taking a step towards that goal. Jean, from Howling Frog Books, is hosting the Reading ALL Around the World club and I’m joining it! Here I explain the challenge a bit, but for the detailed description and sign up page, go HERE.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
✱ Sign up at the page linked above.
✱ Read books from 50+ countries or all of them! The number depends on you.
✱ Choose either fiction by a writer living in/from the country, OR a non-fiction book about it.
✱ You can decide on a timeline, but don’t worry if you don’t make it. There are no time constraints.
✱ Keep track of your reading on your blog.
✱ When you reach your goal, celebrate!
What finally made me join in is the fact that I can go at my own pace and set my own goals. I’m not committing to a timeline at the moment and my end goal is to read from ALL the countries, but as that might prove hard, I’ll start with the ones I can find and don’t stress if I can’t actually accomplish the whole thing.
Also, I’m working with Jean on the graphics and I’m coming up with badges for participants to win and put on their blogs. I’m very excited about the whole idea and I think it’s not only great as a long-term project, but a cool way to approach reading more diversely.
I really hope this project grows and everyone that joins in can share their own experience with it. I can’t wait to see where it goes!
