Only Orangery is hosting the Eur-Crazy challenge to read books located in each of the 42 countries in Europe.
Here are the rules:
1. Read one book from each of the 42 countries in Europe. (There is a list of the countries on the sign up page). The location of the book must be primarily, though not exclusively, in that country.
2. Books must be more than 100 pages to qualify.
Special Rule #1: There are also 8 microstates. If you cannot find a book you'd like to read for a particular country, you may substitute a book from one of the microstates.3. Check in with Only Orangery on the first of the month to post an update of your progress. You MUST write reviews of the books as proof that you have actually read them.
Special Rule #2: You may include books that are from specific regions but unspecified countries.
Special Rule #3: Turkey and Russia are transcontinental states, meaning they are in both Europe and Asia. You should try to make sure the book is located within Europe, but it's not going to disqualify you if you don't.
Special Rule #4: Re-reads are okay, but you must read the book during the time frame of the challenge.
4. Everyone who completes the challenge will be placed in a random drawing for a $25 gift certificate from Better World Books.
