January 1, 2014 – December 31, 2014
The only requirement of the challenge is that the books read for it include an immigrant story. The immigrants can be coming to or from any country - expand your horizons!
How Many Books Do I Need to Read?There are three levels for the challenge:
Just off the boat: 1-3 books
This land is my land?: 4-6 books
Fully assimilated: 6+ books
What types of books are eligible?Only fiction? How about audiobooks? All types of books are eligible - fiction, non-fiction, short stories, audiobooks, e-books.
Re-reads are acceptable as are cross-overs with other challenges. Throughout the year, I try to feature guest posts from authors of books featuring an immigrant story and or who were immigrants themselves (author guest posts). If you are an author or publisher of a book with an immigrant theme or are interested in posting about the immigrant experience, please contact me.
This reading challenge event is hosted by Books in the City. For more information and to sign-up, please see this post.
