Australian Women Writers Challenge 2013 (supporting and promoting books by Australian women)

January 20 2013

I thought I’d sign up for the Australian Women Writers (AWW) Challenge this year, in the hopes of;

  • encouraging more reading, particularly proper books (no e-readers for me however I respect others using them, as long as people read, it’s all good)
  • promoting both Australian literature and women writers
  • structuring my personal reading habits a bit more
  • both reviewing and reading a variety of books

The idea is to read, review and support Australian female authors.  I’ve committed to reading 4 books this year (although have chosen 6!) with accompanying reviews so I hope some readers can join me?  You don’t need to be Australian, it’s open to everybody throughout the year and it would be great for more people overseas to read our wonderful literature.

You can share your reading and/or reviewing on Twitter using the #aww2013 hashtag and by pinging @auswomenwriters for retweeting or  on the AWW pages on Google+, Facebook and in the AWW group in GoodReads – I’ll be using GoodReads for my reviewing and discussion, as well as this blog.

Check the AWW Challenge sign-up for further information and signing up!

  1. What a great idea! On your list of six, I’ve read one — Almost French — and quite enjoyed it. I look forward to reading your reviews!

  2. I found your blog through pinterest and love it. The Harp in the South, from your list, is one of my favourite books.
    Looking foward to trying some of your recipes too.
