2015 Books in Translation Challenge

Yes, I know, I'm cutting down on challenges this year.  And I am, really!  But I'd like to add this one: the Books in Translation Challenge at Introverted Reader.

I'm sure I'm behind as usual, but it's time for the 2015 Books in Translation Reading Challenge signup! The goal is obviously to read translations of books, from any language into the language(s) you're comfortable reading in; they don't have to be in English.
You can read any genre and any age range. Crossovers with other challenges are fine. Any format that you choose is also acceptable. The challenge will run from January 1 through December 31, 2014.

Looking for suggestions? I have a shelf on GoodReads you can check out. There's also a Listopia list on GoodReads. Linked reviews for the 2014, 2013, and 2012 challenges are a great resource.

I am not limiting the challenge to bloggers. You can also link to a review you wrote on another site, such as GoodReads or LibraryThing.

Levels:
Beginner: Read 1-3 books in translation
Conversationalist: 4-6
Bilingual: 7-9
Linguist: 10-12

I have lots of translated books that I want to read, so I'm going to go for broke and sign up for the Linguist level of 10+.  Wish me luck!

Oh no, this looks good. You may have influenced me (let me tell you, that is not hard!). Sigh!

I see these challenges and wonder if I should sign-up, and then I think, 'I'm reading this for a challenge already anyway, so why join another one?" It makes sense to me. I have a lot of books in translation that I intend reading next year...most of the French!!

Good luck with yours. ^_^
