2016 Middle East Reading Challenge

Going to do this one now, too.  Will try for the first level.  Sign up here.

Join me in the 2016 Middle East Reading Challenge! The goal is to read books by Middle Eastern authors or the setting occurring in the Middle East.
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, 2016.
I am not limiting the challenge to bloggers, you can link to a review you wrote on another site.
