The Challenges

Hello, I’m Catherine and I live in Melbourne, VIC Australia. I’ve started joining reading challenges via Goodreads, an online book club and review website. The current challenge I am engaged in is Read Around US in 52 Books combined with Read Around Canada. I am not reading in Central America, although strictly speaking it is part of the North American continent. I’ve almost finished this challenge and another called the Sth China Sea challenge. I’m starting another soon and this is to be read all Africa. The authors have to be from that country writing about their country – fiction or non-fiction, from journalism to poetry. The first challenge I did was  52 Books Around the World – and all reads for this are now tagged with 52 Books. This will contain my reviews of the books I have read during my trip. You can subscribe to individual tags with RSS – handy if you only want to keep updated on a particular challenge. So – let’s begin!
