Dorte - I am impressed with the progress you're making!! This Global Reading Challenge was a fantastic idea, and I'm so enjoying reading about all the books that participants have chosen.

Dorte H sagde ...

Care: thank you.

Margot: yes, wasn´t it a good idea? I agree that it is very inspiring to see what other participants have read. And as you can see, I still need a few ideas :D

I'm impressed that you have planned what you are going to read Dorte - I haven't got that far yet. I too am enjoying seeing what others have chosen

Kelly sagde ...

I am also impressed!

This was a challenge I knew I could never meet. The majority of my books are by American, Canadian, or British authors. The only exceptions I can think of in recent years' reading are Steig Larsson (I liked the second book more than the first), Alexander McCall Smith (don't know if he counts for Scotland or Botswana) and Javier Sierra (Spain).

Kerrie: well, they are just lose plans, and I may change them several times - if I get new books that catch my fancy.

Kelly: I came up with the challenge because I could see most of my books were Scandinavian or British, and I wanted to expand my field a bit :D

Well done Dorte.

Dorte H sagde ...

Jose: thank you.

Søren sagde ...

Oh, I'm way behind :-o Got to hurry now :-)

Dorte H sagde ...

Søren: oh, 2010 is very young yet. But as I have several of the books on my shelf, and many of them look very tempting indeed, there is no need to wait.
