Year of the Asian Reading Challenge 2019


YARC stands for Year of Asian Reading Challenge, and I noticed it on Based on a True Story by Heather. Heather runs #FoodieReads, so I'm on her blog all the time; I can't believe I've never noticed this challenge! You can read about the challenge (here), from one of the hosts.


And, since I'm so late to the party, I'm aiming for Philippine Tarsier...or just 1 to 10 books by Asian authors. Maybe next year I'll be able to read more than that. Stay tuned.

So, I asked Heather if she counts only Asian nationals or do Asian-American count. She counts them all. I will do the same. In that case, I have already logged five.
