The gist: 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 – it's supposed to be a tour.

I host this challenge, so I signed up at the highest level, the Five Star (Deluxe Entourage) level, to read at least five books by different European authors or books set in different European countries. I read a total of eight books, but I didn't review many of them. I was pretty busy starting my own law firm this year, so didn't have the time or attention to review many of the books I read. I barely had time to read them!
