THE AUSSIE AUTHOR CHALLENGE!
Reading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home, but more important, it finds homes for us everywhere.
And so I am pleased to announce that I have decided to host my first ever challenge - The Aussie Author Challenge.
I hope that people choose to join in, I am very excited about it and I think that it would be great if others joined in with me in supporting Australian authors and literature. Here are the details of the challenge:
To read books by Australian authors.
Whenever you chose to join the challenge until 31 December 2010.
Grouse: 8 books
Bloody Oath!: 12 books
The books must be fiction;
They can be classics or modern fiction;
At the end of year I will make sure that everyone who participates gets a link back to their challenge outcome so that we can see how we all went and hopefully be introduced into some new books for the next year. I hope everyone enjoys the Aussie Authors Challenge!

My Aussie Author Challenge is the first ever challenge that I have started, so I am a little attached. So I have decided to complete my aussie author challenge as well as the one at Booklover book reviews. In this challenge I will be aiming for the Fair Dinkum level of 8 Australian books.
