I joined this challenge simply because I love Australian accents, and thought it might be interesting to read some books specifically from Australian authors. Whatever works, right?! Booklover Book Reviews is the host.
The Goal: To showcase the wonderful diversity of the work being produced by Australian authors.
Tidbits: When the blogger hosts giveaways of books written by Aussie Authors, participants of this challenge will be eligible for extra entries into the random draws (1 extra entry for challenge registration + 1 extra entry for each book review link accepted at that time). They will be interviewing both established and up and coming Aussie authors. A link to every book review published as part of this challenge will be featured in an Aussie Author Challenge Update section of their Booklover Book Reviews Newsletter (currently 440+ subscribers).
The Rules: Tell the world you are committing to this challenge and at what level. Each time you read and review a book please provide a link back to the challenge page. Then add a link to that review to the Aussie Book Reviews Linky. When you have completed this challenge tell the world about the achievement, and submit a link to that completion announcement via the Challenge Completion Linky.
When sharing your reviews via twitter, or more generally discussing this challenge, use the hashtag #aussieauthor.
