OT 2009

Yes, I just came to know that the Orbis Terrarum Challenge for 2009 is on from March 1st onwards. It was great fun and a learning experience doing it last year, and I am in for 2009 as well!

Here are the rules for participation in the Challenge:

*The Orbis Terrarum Challenge begins March 1 2009(you are welcome to join later) Through the end of 2009.
*For the challenge each reader is to choose 10 books (for the 10 months).
*Each book must be from a different country, I have decided to go by the country of origin of the author, or the country he/she lives in is fine as well.
*You don’t have to have a list, that means you can change your mind at any time. As long as there are 10 from 10 different countries, written by 10 different authors: Anything goes.

Check out Bethany’s blog here for more details on the Challenge.

I’ve not made up my reading list, but would like to build it up as the year progresses. I would love to move to more QUALITY books. Would love your suggestions on what I should be reading for OT 2009. Do drop in with them suggestions for authors and books. Thanks!
