Reading Challenges

I’m involved in three reading challenges. One I actually do; one is more an aspiration than reality, and the final one is a very long term project that I may not ever complete.  I’ve provided the links to my reviews.

  1. 2017 Australian Women Writers Challenge

Well, here I am again for the next Australian Women Writers Challenge.  Each year I say I will read more history, so perhaps this year?

  1. January 24: Illicit Love: Interracial Sex and Marriage in the United States and Australia by Ann McGrath

2. TBR Challenge

This involves reading books that you already have on your shelves.  I have HUNDREDS of books on my shelves that I haven’t read. I started this in 2016 but I think that it’s going to be a very long project…..

April 2016: Their Eyes were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston

May 2016:  Caledonia Australis by Don Watson

3. Reading the World

Ann Morgan managed to read a book from every country in the world (all 196 of them) in a year. There’s no way I could do it in a year, but I have the rest of my life to try….

Indonesia:  Beauty is a Wound by Ewa Kurniawan

Ireland: A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing by Eimar McBride

The Guardian (24/3/16) had an interesting article ‘Europe’s best indie novels..’ which has a list of translated European novels which gives some good titles to track down.
