2012 Aussie Author Challenge
Whether you are a patriotic Australian, an aspiring or armchair tourist or simply an international reader wanting to discover some talented new authors with like-minded readers, the 2012 Aussie Author Challenge could be for you!
The 2011 Aussie Author Challenge was a great success with 45+ participants providing links to more than 170 reviews of books by Australian Authors.
Even as a born and bred Aussie, I simply have not read enough Aussie Authors, and in hosting this reading challenge for its third year I seek to right that wrong!
This dedicated page here at Booklover Book Reviews will be your one-stop shop for the challenge.
Challenge Period: 1 January 2012 – 31 December 2012
OBJECTIVE Read and review books written by Australian Authors – physical books, ebooks and audiobooks, fiction and non-fiction!
TOURIST – Read and review 3 books by at least 2 different Australian Authors
DINKY-DI – Read and review 12 books by at least 6 different Australian authors
‘Dinky-Di’ is Australian slang meaning ‘true or genuine’.
Each month during the challenge I will offer an interview/guest blogging opportunity on Booklover Book Reviews to an active participant in this challenge.
