Bookish Ways to Celebrate Australia Day

Aussie Author Challenge 2012Happy Australia Day everyone!

Here is a list of bookish ways to celebrate Australia Day.

Here at Booklover Book Reviews:

– I have published my review of Australian author Matthew Reilly’s latest blockbuster, Scarecrow and the Army of Thieves. This was Australia’s bestselling fiction title in 2011.

– My review of the Age Book of the Year Award 2011 winner, Fiona McGregor’s Indelible Ink, will be posted later today.

– You can enter my current international giveaway of a 3 Book Prize Pack from Australian author Lenny Bartulin – The Jack Susko Mystery Series.

Jack Susko Prize Pack– You can sign-up to the Aussie Author Challenge 2012 or read current challenge participant’s reviews of Australian titles (click to see review listing).

– You could email a lesser known Australian author and offer to review their latest release. For instance I know Ilsa Evans, Anna PatricioDr Nabil Saleh, and Sean Terrill are all seeking reviews. (Unfortunately I just don’t have enough time to accept all review copies I’m offered.)

Some of my favourite online book retailers are offering great discounts to celebrate Australia Day:

Betterworld Books are offering 35% off 7+ used books from their Bargain Bin – today only

Kobo eBooks are offering 25% discount from now until 29 January in honour of Australia Day
