2012 Challenge--Winter Olympics (goes until 2014)



This challenge is hosted by Tanya from GirlXOXO and runs from March 1, 2010 through February 6, 2014. I've taken the text from the challenge website.

Concept:
The purpose is to encourage reading books from countries other than your own - where the country is the setting for the book, or the author is from that country. And you have until the start of the next Winter Olympic games to do it.
Level 1 (Gold): Read a book from every country that won a medal.
Level 2 (Silver): Read a book from every country that won aGold medal.
Level 3 (Bronze): Read a book from every country that wonGold, Silver AND Bronze medals.


Goal:
I am going to shoot for level 1, reading a book from every country that won a medal. This challenge totally fits in with my desire to read books set in other countries.
