Arabic Literature (In English) is hosting the Arabic Summer Reading Challenge. You only have to commit to ONE book. Here is what she writes:
So why not an Arabic literature reading challenge? I asked a few critics, professors, booksellers, writers and translators which five books they would suggest one must read “before you die.” (You will note a few seem to have trouble with their math skills.)There will be a prize winner announced on August 20th (and it is a GREAT prize!). To participate, visit the post about the challenge and check out all the great authors and works in translation listed there. Simply choose ONE book and leave a comment there to join in the fun.
