Aussie Author Challenge (Aussie Month Post)

Bookwordlover's hosting a very interesting Challenge:
The Aussie Author Challenge

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 Mister Linky list below. (here, not in this blog).

3. Decide which Aussie authors you will read in 2010, although you can change your book titles or challenge level at anytime!

4. 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 your book review to the list at this post AUSSIE AUTHOR CHALLENGE Book Reviews.

Challenge starts 1 January 2010 and ends 31 December 2010

There are 2 challenge levels - TOURIST and FAIR DINKUM!

TOURIST - Read and review 3 books by 3 different Australian authors.
FAIR DINKUM - Read and review 8 books by Australian authors (a minimum of 5 different Australian authors).
Need help deciding which Aussie Authors are going to be on your list?

To get you started, Abebooks provides a great list of Australian Authors and book titles. Authors include Peter Carey, David Malouf, Tim Winton, Markus Zusak, Peter Temple, Shane Maloney, Kerry Greenwood, Gregory David Roberts, Frank Moorhouse and Kate Grenville just to name but a few...


I'm joining (can't tell you if i'll succeed or fail. fail, most likely).
My Level will be TOURIST.

1. Tomorrow, When The War Began, by John Marsden
2. That's Why I Wrote This Song, by Susanne Gervay (currently reading)

I hope to find some interesting titles to read.
Any recommendation?
