How many books do I have to read?
Minimum number of books = 3
All the 3 books should be from different countries. After 3 you can read as many as you can, repeating the countries if you wish.
Do I have to write reviews?
Not necessary. But it will be great if you can write a few lines or do a mini review. That way more people will be aware of the books from this region.You can also link you GoodReads, Shelfari or any other sites where you post your reviews instead of your blog.
Does the author have to be from East or SouthEast Asia?
No, just the book has to be set in this region.
What kind of books can I read?
Every type available out there, from YA to literary fiction to mysteries to memoirs.
Can I combine it with other Challenges?
Why is South Asia excluded from the Challenge?
Because Swapna already runs a great Challenge called the South Asian Authors Challenge.
To join, go to East and SouthEast Asia Challenge.
