YEAR OF THE ASIAN READING CHALLENGE + PROGRESS TRACKER

Hi friends! After much deliberation, I’ve decided to participate in the Year Of The Asian Reading Challenge, hosted by the lovely CW from The Quiet Pond, Shealea from Shut Up, Shealea, Lily from Sprinkles of Dreams and Vicky from Vicky Who Reads. Essentially, the goal of the challenge is to read as many books by Asian authors as you can and since I have a bunch of Asian books I want to read, I thought it was fitting to join the challenge. For more information and to sign up, check out the host’s blogs (linked before) or their Twitter @YearOfTheAsian.

You can also earn badges depending on the amount of books you complete for this challenge (they’re adorable and are designed by the amazing artist, CW). I’m going to be starting with the Philippine Tarsier (1 to 10 books) but I want to aim to achieve the Giant Panda badge (31 to 40 books) by the end of the year. Fingers crossed I’ll be able to!
