Welcome to Orbis Terrarum 2009!!!
This is year 2 of our big adventure. There are some different things going on this year, so read up and tell me if you like it.
Main Challenge Rules:
*The Orbis Terrarum Challenge begins March 1 2009(you are welcome to join later) Through the end of 2009.
*For the challenge each reader is to choose 10 books (for the 10 months).
*Each book must from a different country, I have decided to go by the country of origin of the author, or the country he/she lives in is fine as well.
*You don't have to have a list, that means you can change your mind at any time. As long as there are 10 from 10 different countries, written by 10 different authors: Anything goes.
The bottom line: choose 10 different books, written by 10 different authors, from 10 different countries.
***At the end of the challenge for next year I thought it would be really fun to do (an optional) book exchange! I don't mind being in charge of prizes some of the time, but I was just thinking it would be really fun to get everyone involved in the end.
At the end of the challenge each OT challenger could select one of their favourite books that they read during that challenge to pass on to someone else who also finished the challenge. It would be like a: bests of 2009 OT swap!!FUN.
Tell me what you think!!
If some people didn't want to be involved, they could just opt out, no problem.
