Paper Tigers Reading The World Challenge

Okay, I couldn't not join Reading the World Challenge at Papertigers.org. Majorie is a great multicultural literature proponent and a lovely person. Of course, I've rationalized that this challenge overlaps with my other challenges so here's the details:

Choose one book from/about/by or illustrated by someone from each of the seven continents –
Africa
Antarctica
Asia
Australasia
Europe
North America
South America

Have the books read aloud to you or read them yourself; share them as part of a book-group or in class. Combine your choices with other reading challenges.

The books can be picture-books, poetry, fiction, non-fiction… the choice is yours.

You can find lots of ideas in the PaperTigers Reviews and Reading Lists sections.

I'm not creating a reading list but I will periodically edit this with recommendations.

I can't sign up for book challenges that I have to keep track of my books. Way to disorganized for that. But I'm looking forward to your reading to remind me what to pick up along the way.

Pam,

I don't know anyone as scattered as I am. I joined these challenges in an attempt to keep track of what I read. LOL I have a link at the top of my blog with a dedicated page to my challenges and each challenge has a page. Before you think I'm organized this is really a counter to how unorganized I am. We'll see how well I do. At least I'll be able to say I tried.

Nonetheless, please do keep popping in. :-)

Thanks,
