2012 Reading Challenge: Australian Women Writters Challenge

AustralianWomenWritters.com is running another Aussie Author Challenge that I thought might be fun.

Any book is accepted as long as the author is a women and Australian.
I am attempting the Franklin-fantastic and hope to discover some great new authors in the process.

Objective: This challenge hopes to help counteract the gender bias in reviewing and social media newsfeeds that has continued throughout 2011. It actively promotes the reading and reviewing of a wide range of contemporary Australian women's writing throughout 2012, the National Year of Reading.

Genre Challenges: 
Purist: one genre only
Dabbler: more than one genre
Devoted eclectic: as many genres as you can find

Challenge Levels:
Stella (read 3 and review at least 2 books)
Miles (read 6 and review at least 3)
Franklin-fantastic (read 10 and review at least 4 books)

The challenge begins January 1st and continues through the end of December, 2012
