2013 Books in Translation Reading Challenge

January 1, 2013 – December 31, 2013

I'll be hosting the Books in Translation Reading Challenge again this year. I failed pretty miserably at it last year, reading only two when my goal was 4-6. Oops. I hope to do better this year. The goal is obviously to read translations of books, from any language into the language(s) you're comfortable reading in; they don't have to be in English.

You can read any genre and any age range. Crossovers with other challenges are fine. Any format that you choose is also acceptable. The challenge will run from January 1 through December 31, 2013.

Looking for suggestions? I have a shelf on GoodReads you can check out. There's also a Listopia list on GoodReads. Last year's linked reviews are a great resource.

I am not limiting the challenge to bloggers. You can also link to a review you wrote on another site, such as GoodReads or LibraryThing.

Beginner: Read 1-3 books in translation
Conversationalist: 4-6
Bilingual: 7-9
Linguist: 10-12

I'm committing to the Conversationalist level at 4-6 books. I'll track my progress here.

I hope you'll join me!  Sign up anytime throughout the year by linking below!
