Gilion is once again offering the European Reading Challenge in 2017 – where participants tour Europe through books.  And have a chance to win a prize.  Please join us for the Grand Tour!



THE GIST: The idea is to read books by European authors or books set in European countries (no matter where the author comes from). The books can be anything – novels, short stories, memoirs, travel guides, cookbooks, biography, poetry, or any other genre. You can participate at different levels, but each book must be by a different author and set in a different country – it's supposed to be a tour. (Check out the full details at her page)

THE LIST: Albania, Andorra, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Macedonia, Romania, Russia, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and Vatican City.

NOTE: Even after Brexit, the United Kingdom is still one country, in Europe, that includes England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. So one book from any one of these four counts as your one book for the United Kingdom.

I'll be aiming for the FIVE STAR (DELUXE ENTOURAGE): Read at least five books by different European authors or books set in different European countries. 

My Reads:

1. Death at Swaythling Court by J. J. Connington [England--UK] (1/4/17)
2. Murder at the Masque by Amy Myers [France--Cannes] (1/16/17)
3. The Golden Bird: Folk Tales From Slovenia by Vladimir Kavčič [Slovenia] (5/16/17)
4. Decision at Delphi by Helen MacInnes [Greece] (5/28/17)
