European Reading Challenge

I’m shooting for this:

Five Star (Deluxe Entourage): Read at least five books by different European authors or books set in different European countries.

And I plan to read actually at least 7 books:

2. England: Charles Dickens: A Life, by Claire Tomalin

3. Belgium: The Adventures of Hergé, by José-Louis Bocquet

4. Greece: Saint Gregory Palamas As a Hagiorite, by Ierotheos of Nafpaktos

5. Romania: Exploring the Inner Universe, by Roman Braga

6. Denmark: The Boy in the Suitcase, by Lene Kaaberbol and Agnete Friis

7. Italy: If On A Winter’s Night A Traveler, by Italo Calvino

8. Germany: In The Garden Of Beasts, by Erik Larson

9. Russia: The Master and Margarita, by Mikhail Bulgakov

10.  Iceland: The Far Traveler, by Mary Nancy Brown, to be reviewed!

11. Albania: The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax, by Dorothy Gilman

12. Switzerland: A Palm For Mrs. Pollifax, by Dorothy Gilman

  1. I am so happy that you signed up!

    If on a winter’s night is on my list of possibilities too, but I don’t know if I will actually tackle it.

    Master & Margarita is also on my TBR shelf, but I am leaning towards Doctor Zhivago for my Russia book. Its been on my TBR shelf even longer.

    I look forward to seeing what other books you pick.

    Happy reading!


  2. I’m joining the European Reading Challenge as well and I’m browsing a little through the participant’s list. I’m so curious what everyone will read. And you already have chosen some books :). I don’t know the books so I will come back later to learn more!
    Happy Reading!
