THE 2019 EUROPEAN READING CHALLENGE SIGN UP PAGE IS AT THIS PAGE
2018 was the seventh year for this challenge, which involves reading books set in different European countries or written by authors from different European countries.
Big thanks to all the participants who joined me for the Grand Tour!
JET SETTER GRAND PRIZE WINNER
The 2018 Jet Setter prize goes to Reese at Typings who visited 16 different European countries reviewed the books she read. Her wrap up post has links to all her reviews.
Honorary Mention (but no prizes) go to five other participants who read and reviewed books from 10 or more unique countries:
- Maphead (15)
- Whatever I Think Of (15)
- Bitter Tea and Mystery (14)
- Canadian Bookworm (14)
- Howling Frog (10)
My own wrap-up post is here. I read 13 books from different European countries, although only three were translations, which is backsliding from the year before. But again, I didn't review any of the books I read because last year was crazy busy for me at my law practice.
Congratulations to all the readers who completed the challenge! There is still plenty of time to join us in 2019.

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.
