    Progress so far:
    1. Brief Encounters by Susannah Fullerton
    2. Searching for the Secret River by Kate Grenville – a non-fiction title, so it doesn't weave the same magic as Grenville's novels but very interesting all the same.

    3. The Bay of Noon by Shirley Hazzard – longlisted for the Lost Booker Prize, and a very fine book.

    Maybe *grin* you should have a special category for Aussie participants!

    Lisa – Congratulations on being the first to complete this challenge to my knowledge! I had a sneaking suspicion from early on that you would be the first to complete it. Thanks for all the excellent reviews you have contributed to our list above – I would wholeheartedly recommend your blog for anyone interested in Aussie Lit!

    I know 3 isn't much compared to many participants but as I don't read much fiction I'm feeling pleased. :) It's certainly going to keep me on the lookout for Aussie authors this year.

    Just discovered this challenge! So far in 2010, I've read six books by three Aussie authors, so I should meet the eight by five target soon ;)

    Hi. I've just put up my first review, Breath, by Tim Winton. I know I'd better get moving on this but I have read the books and hope to post a review every week til I'm done.

    Thanks for hosting. What a marvellous idea. Who knew there were so many great Aussie authors – we did!

    It'll be great to wade through the reviews..:)

    I don't know what happened but the URL I put (the Chasers one) didn't work for some reason. I think the Mr Linky got mixed up so the link isn't going anywhere.

  10. says

    I've just put up my third review, The Forgotten Garden, by Kate Morton. Sorry for two Mr Linky posts, but it said it failed the first time, so when I fixed it up, voila, there's two!

    Wonderful guide. I just discovered your site and had to tell you that I have for sure had much fun looking through your web site. I have became a subscriber to your feed and I hope you are going to post again ASAP. I am curious if I should really subscribe to comments feed too. Any useful conversations happening in comments?
