There are two levels in this challenge hosted by Booklover Book Reviews.
TOURIST
- Read and review 3 books by at least 2 different Australian Authors
- Fiction or non-fiction, any genre.
FAIR DINKUM
- Read and review 12 books by Australian Authors
- Ensure at least 4 of the authors are male, at least 4 of the authors are female and at least 4 of the authors are new to you
- Ensure at least 2 of the books are non-fiction and at least 4 fiction genres are represented amongst your 12 titles.
Balanced and diverse reading is the objective here.

I don't really meet the diversity criteria as I read only crime fiction.

Within the clutch of titles that I've read, 12 have let me complete the Australian Women Writers Challenge
