Orbis Terrarum Challenge


Another challenge that I'm joining really late, but I always loved this one and I want to be involved. Even if I already know I might not finish.

Bethany at Dreadlock Girl is hosting again - she created a new site for the challenge, check it out for all the info you might need. For here, it's sufficient to say that it lasts from April 1 to November 30 and requires 8 books by authors from different countries. Oh and it's great fun! :-)

I'm with Nymeth. Even though I'm still not joining any more (and counting down the months until mine are finally finished). I always loved this one, though. Good luck!! I'd really like to read Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and White Tiger one of these days.
