Books and challenges are two things I really love 😉  And so, when I got to know there is a reading challenge hosted at S. Krishna’s Books and that most friends are taking part in it,  I decided to take the plunge too.  I just journeyed through my book list of 2010 and I see that I have anyway read 10+  books from authors of  Asian origin.  So, taking it up as a challenge would mean more fun.

All you need to do as part of this challenge is read books about South Asia / by South Asian authors  in  2011.  I see it as  a great opportunity to learn more about enchanting Southern Asia and the amazing authors that it has produced too  🙂

For more clarity on what the challenge is about and for answers to all your questions, click here.

Do sign up for the challenge here. Hoping to see you all there 🙂 More the merrier 😀

ETA: Am planning to read 10 books. Wish me luck 🙂
