Aussie Author Challenge 2010
Once again my morning reading of the items in my Google Reader in box brought me news of another new reading challenge that I wanted to join. It is The Aussie Author Challenge 2010 hosted by Booklover Book Reviews. The rules are pretty simple. There are two levels of commitment. At the Tourist Level you are asked to read three books by three different Australian authors. At the Fair Dinkum Level you are asked to read eight books, of which five must be by different authors. A link is provided giving reading ideas and the challenge host will be doing features periodically on different writers from Australia. (I am hoping we will learn Marcus Zusak has another book coming out soon!) I have noticed my blog has a lot of visitors from Australia so I decided why not and I will commit to the tourist level. Marcus Zusak has one book in print I have not yet read and if I cannot get it I would love to reread The Book Thief. Geraldine Brooks of People of the Book has two historical novels that look great. I ask any Australian visitors to please give me some ideas also.
