2011 Reading Challenge: Aussie Author Challenge

Booklover Book Review is again running the Aussie Author Challenge. In 2010 I read 27 books written by Aussies and this year I hope to complete the True Blue, although again I have tampered with the number of books I am to read as I love reading books by our very talented Aussie Authors.

Objective:Read and review books written by Australian Authors - physical books, ebooks and audiobooks, fiction and non-fiction!

1. Tourist - Read and review 3 books by 3 different Australian authors.

2. True Blue - Read and review 12 books by Australian authors (a minimum of 9 different Australian authors)
--For myself I have set a target of 24 books by Australian authors (a minimum of 12 different Australian authors)

Here are the rules:
1. Write a challenge sign-up post on your blog. In that post provide a link to this original post acknowledging Booklover Book Reviews and put this Challenge Button on your sidebar, linking the button to my challenge post.

2. Add your name and the direct link to your Aussie Author Challenge sign-up post in the Challenge Sign-Up Link List below, so myself and other challenge participants can check in and say hi!

3. Each time you read and review a book as part of this challenge, share this with other challenge participants by adding a direct link to the Challenge Book Review Link List below.

4. When you have completed the challenge, add a link to your completion to the Completion Post List Link List below.
