I live in Sweden but in the last year I’ve realised that I read very few books by Nordic authors. I wanted to remedy that and threw out the idea of a Nordic author challenge. Several people showed interest so here we are.
When: January 1st, 2011- December 31st 2011
There will be 5 levels. The levels are
Huginn and Muninn: Read 2 books
Freya: Read 3-5 books
Tor: Read 6-10 books
Odin: Read 11-20 books
Valhalla: Read 20+ books
There is no need to make a list before hand. Any book by any author born in a Nordic country (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and/or Sweden) or a book set in a Nordic country.
They can be from any genre (I will be reading a mixture of classics, children’s books, YA and mystery).
I’ve decided to do links by quarter so at the beginning of January, April, July and October a page will go up for links.
From the links each quarter I will draw a winner, the winner will win a book that I can ship from BookDepository. When the page for the links go up I will also provide a list of books you can choose from. The prizes are open to anyone living in a country the BookDepository ships to. To see if your country qualifies check here.
Here is the button I made, feel free to grab.
If anyone is better than me at making buttons contributions are gratefully received!
I’m working on a resource list and hope to have it up in the next few days. If you have read any books by Nordic authors that you want to share please send me a message at Zommbie1 @ gmail [dot] com (I’ve got plenty of Swedish authors but am having more of an issue with the other countries *is shamefaced*)
