For the last 3 years I have participated in the Australian Women Writers Challenge.
This year I will continue participation and am committing to Franklin level. I will be reading 10 books by Australian women writers. Should be easily achieved as I've managed 21 in the last two years.
Now that the wedding is out of the way and all of the organisation and creation that went with it, I'd like to do more reading. To this end, I'm doing not one, but 4 reading challenges this year.
On Goodreads, I've committed to reading 30 books this year; or 0.6 books a week. Combining traditional reading with audiobooks, this should be achievable.
Then there's the Book Riot Read Harder 2016 Challenge and the Popsugar Ultimate Reading Challenge. Both of these challenge the reader to go beyond their usual genre or preferred reading habits, and read a bit more diversely.
I've created a not very pretty bingo card with mashes the challenges up. And I fully intend double, triple or quadruple dipping. As long as I read 30 books this year, 10 of which are by Australian women, I'll be happy. The rest is a bit of fun to keep me thinking.
