We have three yearly challenges which will be, as the name implies, going on year round. Feel free to join in on one or all three. If you cannot start right now, join us in a couple of months!

Challenge #3 – Around the World Challenge
Photobucket
This one was suggested by Tana, and I thought it sounded like a lot of fun. For this challenge, read books that take place around the globe, has scenes set in different countries, or whose author is from a different country. Use each country only once.

Example:
Ireland – Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning
Morocco – Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor
U.S. (Chicago) – Death Masks by Jim Butcher

Everyone who participates in and completes at least 10 books for this challenge will get their name in the hat for a drawing for a $15 Amazon or B&N gift certificate (winner's choice) at the end of December!

To be entered into the drawing, you must let me know when you complete the challenge. There will be too many posts for me to go through them all looking for finished ones. Simply copy and paste your entire post into a new post at the end – or post a new message saying "I finished in thread #??."

Go ahead and post your books now, but do not start reading until January 1st.

Happy reading!

Yep, how ever many you want...to be entered into the drawing, though, you need to complete at least 10. I thought that made it a little more fair. Plus it goes all year, so we have plenty of time :)

I noticed you wrote U.S. (Chicago) does that mean that each state counts as a country, or can you only have one from the US?
