Announcing the 2012 Europa Challenge!

The 2012 Europa Challenge is on!

The 2012 Challenge will run from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012.

In an effort to encourage participation, I've revamped the levels to make the minimum qualifying books 2. Here are the levels:
  • Ristretto Level (2 Europas-just try a little) 
  • Espresso Level (4 Europas-a little more)
  • Cappuccino Level (6 Europas)
  • Caffe Luongo Level (12 Europas) 
Like last year we'll be offering the following specialty challenges:
At any level, you can qualify as
  • A Connoisseur, by accepting the Perpetual Challenge;
  • An Expatriate, by choosing books from a single country or original language;
  • A Passport Holder, by choosing books from different countries or original languages.
  • You can also do the Tonga Challenge, and devote yourself to reading Europa's new line.
Participants must post to the Challenge blog, and we encourage you to post to your own, as well. It's a great way to meet bloggers interested in this great publisher, and to have the chance to win giveaways and interact with folks from Europa via Q&As from time to time.

I've planned my next year's reading around participating more fully (and successfully) -- so glad it's happening again!
