European reading challenges 2017

E' ospitata da Rose city reader e va dal 1° gennaio 2017 al 31 gennaio 2018 (13 mesi): consiste nel leggere libri scritti da autori europei o libri ambientati in Europa (in questo caso non importa da dove viene l'autore).
I libri possono essere di qualunque genere, l'importante è che ogni libro sia ambientato in un paese diverso e scritto da un autore diverso.

Ci sono 5 livelli di partecipazione:
- Five star (Deluxe Entourage): leggi almeno 5 libri
- Four star (Honeymooner): leggi 4 libri;
- Three star (Business Traveler): leggi 3 libri;
- Two star (Adventurer): leggi 2 libri;
- One star (Pensione Weekender): leggi 1 libro.

 Come l'anno scorso, punterò a leggere almeno 5 libri :-)


The idea is to read books by European authors or books set in European countries (no matter where the author comes from). The books can be anything – novels, short stories, memoirs, travel guides, cookbooks, biography, poetry, or any other genre. You can participate at different levels, but each book must be by a different author and set in a different country – it's supposed to be a tour. (See note about the UK, below)

 WHAT COUNTS AS "EUROPE"?: We stick with the same list of 50 sovereign states that fall (at least partially) within the geographic territory of the continent of Europe and/or enjoy membership in international European organizations such as the Council of Europe. This list includes the obvious (the UK, France, Germany, Spain, and Italy), the really huge Russia, the tiny Vatican City, and the mixed bag of Baltic, Balkan, and former Soviet states.

 THE LIST: Albania, Andorra, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Macedonia, Romania, Russia, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and Vatican City.

My goal is to read 5 books :-)


My list of books:
4 - Russia: La sonata a Kreutzer (Lev Tolstoj)
5 - France: Il profumo segreto dei fiori (Amanda Hampson)
