Another reading challenge?

That’s what I need in my life…. another reading challenge.  I’ve probably completed the Australian Women Writer’s Challenge several times over by now ( I should write a wrap-up post) and I’ve failed dismally in the TBR challenge where I vowed to read twenty books from those already on my shelves before buying anything else.

But I was fascinated by Ann Morgan’s self-imposed challenge to read a book from every independent country in the world within a year.  There’s no way I could do it within a year- that is, after all 196 books- but perhaps a ten year plan?  You can see a TED-talk where she describes her project here and here is her list of books suggested to her, organized by country (the books she actually read are underlined and linked to her review).

Ah, who am I kidding? I won’t get round to this.  Nonetheless, it’s an interesting idea.
