Reading diversely is something that we should all strive for as it allows us to gain a greater understanding of other places and cultures. When I saw this challenge I thought that it was an amazing opportunity. The Year of the Asian Reading Challenge is basically where you try to read books from as many Asian authors as you can. This is the first reading challenge that I’ve ever participated in outside of the annual Goodreads challenge so I am really excited!
This lovely challenge was created and is being hosted by CW from The Quiet Pond, Lily from Sprinkles of Dreams, Vicky from Vicky Who Reads, and Shealea from Shut up Shealea. If you are interested in participating or just curious, you can find all the information on this page.
I’ve decided to strive for the Indian Cobra badge, which requires reading 11-20 books. I chose this because I believe that I will be able to read at least one book a month. I, of course, will be super happy if I manage to surpass this level, but I do not want to stress myself out as reading should always be fun.
