Gilion is our hostess for the European Reading Challenge each year – where participants tour Europe through books. And have a chance to win a prize. Please join us for the Grand Tour!
I set my sights on the FIVE STAR (DELUXE ENTOURAGE): Read at least five books by different European authors or books set in different European countries. I actually met this goal back in May, but have been reading on to see how many I can get. Her challenge actually goes through the end of January, but for the purposes of my year-end wrap-up, I'm closing out my challenge at the end of December with twelve books read. Thanks, Gilion for hosting!
