Welcome to AusReading Month!
November is our month long celebration of all things Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!
Join us as we read, review and blog about Australian books – classics, contemporary, children’s, poetry, non-fiction, short stories, popular, literary, award-winning – whatever tickles your fancy.
The only stipulation is that it has to be written by an Australian based author or predominantly set in Australia.
This is the official MASTER POST for AusReading Month where you can link all of your posts & reviews.
Comments will be available on each post that I publish over the month, but this is the only post that will have the linky below.
The rules are simple: read one, two or more Australian books throughout the month of November. Write a review on your own blog and link it back here.
If you’re looking for some inspiration, check out the books in the Miles Franklin, Stella Prize, Kibble Literary Award, State by State and CBCA pages on the right of my blog.
Visit and comment on your fellow #AusReadingMonth bloggers posts and help spread the message far and wide.

We’d love to hear from you and about you.
