As the year 2010 nears its end, I’ve just learned about the annual Aussie Author Challenge, a terrific initiative designed to encourage people to read more works by Australian authors. As an Australian author, I can only support such an initiative.
As it turns out, I have met the requirements of the ‘tourist’ category for the 2010 challenge, having posted 3+ reviews of books by Australian authors on this blog in 2010, namely:
A Few Right Thinking Men – Sulari Gentill
Gunshot Road – Adrian Hyland
Take Out – Felicity Young
Line of Sight – David Whish-Wilson
For the 2011 Aussie Author Challenge, aiming for ‘true blue’ status and reviewing 12 books by Australian authors is probably a bit ambitious, given that I am also trying to write another novel.
But I reckon I can keep being a tourist, a get better at it with practice.
