What a crazy year 2011 has been! Thankfully in respect to reading it’s been a great one…
As host of the Aussie Author Challenge 2011, I thought it high time I posted my own challenge completion list.
During 2011 I read or listened to the following titles by Australian authors:
UPSIDE DOWN INSIDE OUT – Monica McInerney (review coming soon)
SCARECROW AND THE ARMY OF THIEVES – Matthew Reilly (review coming soon)
* * *
So that’s 18 books by 16 different Australian authors, 8 male and 8 female.
On that basis I have well and truly met the requirements for the TRUE BLUE level of participation in the challenge.
TRUE BLUE – Read and review 12 books by Australian authors (at least 9 different authors)
* * *
I do hope you all enjoyed the 2011 Aussie Author Challenge. Challenge participants provided links to almost 200 reviews of books by Australia authors. This list is a great reference point when choosing your next book.
The Aussie Author Challenge is back in 2012 for its third year, and is a great way to help fulfil that New Year’s resolution to read more books by Australian authors.
