Continental Reading Challenge 2019

So I tried to get started on hosting and working on the Continental Reading Challenge last year but failed. I am trying again this year and I hope you join me as I traverse across the continents. And I plan to host just this one challenge though I have a few I am trying once again to work on by joining this year.

So here it is – the Continental Reading Challenge 2019 where you read at least one book for each of the seven continents. And here are the rules:

  • The book can satisfy the condition for the continent if a) the author belongs to that continent; b) the book is set in that continent or c) you could also pick a book that is either set there for at least a major part of the book or has something that is unique to that continent- eg: penguins for Antarctica (Mr.Popper’s Penguins is one such example)…
  • There is no start and/or end date for when to join the challenge (latest date to enter a link is Dec 31th, 2019)
  • A book counts if you’ve read it in 2019, no matter when you join the challenge
  • If there are multiple settings in the book across continents, pick one continent to check off – ie a book counts for only one place
  • You can mark off on a map to make it more interesting as you travel across the world through your books
  • You can pick fiction or non-fiction. Books can be for kids, or for adults (so kids books, middle-grade, YA, and more).
  • Use a google map to pin the locations based on the books read – create your own book map. Mine was started a couple of years ago but sorely needs updates – link for my book map is here
  • And a bonus for reading one more book out of this world – maybe set in outer space or a fantasy land!!
  • Some books to help you out: Coming tomorrow on my blog..

  1. What a great challenge!! I wish I could dedicate more time to reading, with 3 young kids it’s almost impossible 🤷🏻‍♀️
