The Global Callenge run by Dorte, is divided into different levels:

I’m beginning with The Easy Challenge

Read one novel from each of these continents in the course of 2011:


  1. Payment Deferred by Joyce Holms (Scotland)
  2. Perfume by Patrick Suskind (France)
  3. The Matchmaker of Kenmare by Frank Delaney (Ireland)

North America

  1. The Case of the Substitute Face by Erle Stanley Gardner

South America (please include Central America where it is most convenient for you)

The Seventh Continent (here you can either choose Antarctica or your own ´seventh´ setting, eg the sea, the space, a supernatural/paranormal world, history, the future – you name it).





  1. True Grit by Charles Portis (History)





From your own continent: try to find a country, state or author that is new to you.
