Welcome to the European Reading Challenge hosted by Rose city reader!

The idea is to read books by European authors or books set in European countries (no matter where the author comes from). The books can be anything – novels, short stories, memoirs, travel guides, cookbooks, biography, poetry, or any other genre. You can participate at different levels, but each book must be by a different author and set in a different country.

LEVELS OF PARTICIPATION:
Five Star (Deluxe Entourage): Read at least five books by different European authors or books set in different European countries.
Four Star (Honeymooner): Read four qualifying books.
Three Star (Business Traveler): Read three qualifying books.
Two Star (Adventurer): Read two qualifying books.
One Star (Pensione Weekender): Read just one qualifying book.

I'm doing this challenge at level Five Star.
There are a lot of other rules (and you can also win a prize!) you can find them here!

Benvenuti alla European reading challenge ospitata da Rose city reader!
L'idea è di leggere libri scritti da autori europei o libri ambientati in Europa (in questo caso non importa da dove provenga l'autore). I libri possono essere di qualunque genere, ci sono diversi livelli di partecipazione e la cosa importante è che ogni libro deve essere di un autore diverso e ambientato in un Paese diverso.

LIVELLI DI PARTECIPAZIONE:
Five star (Deluxe Entourage): leggi almeno 5 libri di differenti autori europei o ambientati in differenti Paesi europei;
Four star (Honeymooner): leggi 4 libri;
Three star (Business Traveler): leggi 3 libri;
Two star (Adventurer): leggi 2 libri;
One star (Pensione Weekender): leggi 1 libro.

Io sto facendo questa sfida al livello Five star.
Ci sono un sacco di altre regole (potete anche vincere un premio!!) le potete trovare qui!
