Read Scotland 2016 Reading Challenge

Read Scotland 2016Peggy Ann at Peggy Ann’s Post is hosting this challenge – to read and review Scottish books – any genre, any form – written by a Scottish author (by birth or immigration) or about or set in Scotland. The Challenge runs January 1 to December 31, 2016 and books you read may count for other challenges.

Challenge levels:

Just A Keek (a little look): 1-5 books
The Highlander: 6-10 books
The Hebridean: 11-15 books
Ben Nevis: 16-20 books
Back O’ Beyond: 21+ books

I’ve taken part in this for the last two years and have found that without trying I naturally read books by Scottish authors/books set in Scotland. So for this challenge I€™ll see at the end of the year how many I’ve read.
