The Orbis Terrarum (The whole world) Challenge *sticky post*
We are hosting a Challenge!! I (b) graduated as a major in Spanish Literature, and my husband (B) in English Literature. I am in love with foreign literature of all types and am always overjoyed to get my hands on a good book in this genre. For this reason I decided to host a challenge!! I decided on Orbis Terrarum because it means "the whole world" and that is what this is all about, reading books from all over. There will not be a ton of rules so that hopefully some of you can overlap as you please.
Here is the deali-o!
- The Orbis Terrarum Challenge begins April 1 2008( you are welcome to join later) Through December 20th 2008.
- For the challenge each reader is to choose 9 books (for the 9 months).
-Each book must be by an author from a different nation in our world.
***Edit! You can change your list of books at any time, just as long as you have read nine in the end. sound good?
The bottom line: choose 9 different books, written by 9 different authors, from 9 different countries.
To join The Orbis Terrarum Challenge, write a post with your 9 books on your blog and then add yourself to Mister Linky! Oh, and use the button if you want to ( I know it isn't very good, if anyone has a better idea...let me know! I wanted it to say Orbis Terrarum in roman type bold letters across the bottom, but our computer is not cooperating!):
**Another Edit!! tanabata has added text to our image!! yay!! (thank you!) Here is the new and improved logo for Orbis Terrarum!:
