Orbis Terrarum 2009


I am exceedingly proud to announce that today is the 1st of March, and the beginning of:

The Orbis Terrarum Challenge
Your mission, should you choose to accept: read 10 different books, written by 10 different authors, from 10 different countries in 10 months.

The Orbis Terrarum Film Challenge
This will be a blast and a great break from reading: this challenge is to watch 10 films, 10 different countries, by 10 different directors in the 10 months.

The Orbis Terrarum Bilingual Challenge
This challenge has several different options based on how bilingual you are, check out the link for the options, but really this is one that most would be able to stretch themselves to accomplish.

The Orbis Terrarum Poetry Challenge
In which you may consider yourself challenged to read 5 poems or poetry collections, by 5 different authors, from 5 different countries.

What do you think? I think it is time for you to join in!
This year the Orbis Terrarum Challenge (and all its other challenges) has its own blog, you'd better head yourself over there for some amazing insight into new worlds, new books and new friends!
