Read Scotland 2014

Read ScotlandThis is Peggy Ann€™s Challenge, Read Scotland 2014. My list of authors is here.

The title says it all really, read and review Scottish books -any genre, any form- written by a Scottish author (by birth or immigration) or about or set in Scotland. There are 4 levels:

Just A Keek (a little look): 1-4 books read
The Highlander: 5-8 books
The Hebridean: 9-12 books
Ben Nevis: 13+ books

I am aiming  for the Hebridean level, but would love to reach the Ben Nevis level.

In July I completed the Ben Nevis level and am now aiming for the next level: Back o’ Beyond (25+ books)
