- Being welcomed into a passionate group of book lovers, exposure to the diverse range of books being published by Australian writers, and we are sure, your next great read!
A new challenge level
In acknowledgement of several ‘super Aussie Author supporters’ in 2019, in 2020 we have added a brand new 24 book challenge level – EMU – to the existing WALLABY (3), WALLAROO (6) and KANGAROO (12 book) levels. Each of these, then include sub-targets designed to promote reading diversity, e.g. gender, genre.

Visit the Aussie Author Reading Challenge 2020 Homepage for full details on each challenge level and step-by-step instructions on how to sign-up and then how to participate once the new year arrives.
There is no time limit on challenge registration. I myself will be signing-up closer to year-end, but I am aware many like to lock away their New Year Reading Resolutions before the holiday festivities take hold.
I look forward to reading and sharing in your experiences with great Australian writing in 2020!
