Wrap-up Post

Some of the participants of this challenge are insatiable readers who may well be able to finish the Global Reading Challenge before I imagine it possible.

So just to prove that I am with it: this is where you post a link when you have finished the challenge (unless you should choose to upgrade your level).

Here are some icons to display on your blog when you've achieved the levels.

If you need inspiration for this one, take a look at the selection of useful links where you will find help for Antarctica (most of the novels can be found in the comments.)
