Advent Calendar, box no. 18 - European Reading Challenge 2018

Hello again. Today was a very relaxing day. Yesterday was tough since I had a problem with a blocked back of the neck. I could hardly move and the pain went down into the arm. A little bit of rest and medication took care of that; so today I managed to swim for half an hour, ten minutes in the jacuzzi, 10 minutes in the hamam, and ten minutes in the aroma sauna.

After that reading from the book I got for Christmas present last year; Duktiga kvinnors revansch by Birgitta Ohlsson (Good Women's Revenge). I was written before the #Metoo campaign, and it makes it even more actual today. Review will follow next year.

I am on for another of my favourite challenges next year. Hosted by Rose at the Rose City Reader.  "The idea is to read books by European authors or books set in European countries (no matter where the author comes from). The books can be anything – novels, short stories, memoirs, travel guides, cookbooks, biography, poetry, or any other genre. You can participate at different levels, but each book must be by a different author and set in a different country – it's supposed to be a tour."

For more information, please visit the web-site. Here are the tours, and I will go for "Five star - deluxe entourage"

FIVE STAR (DELUXE ENTOURAGE): Read at least five books by different European authors or books set in different European countries.

FOUR STAR (HONEYMOONER): Read four qualifying books.

THREE STAR (BUSINESS TRAVELER): Read three qualifying books.

TWO STAR (ADVENTURER): Read two qualifying books.

ONE STAR (PENSIONE WEEKENDER): Read just one qualifying book.
