Time to start thinking about how many Australian books we can read before the end of November.
Given how many of my favourite reading events now seem to be congregating around this time of year, I will make joining in AusReadingMonth as easy as possible.
So let’s pack our bags and travel this big, beautiful land by book.
Fiction, non-fiction, poetry, plays, travel guides, short stories, audio and children’s book can transport us to every state, city and major town in Australia.
Our AusReadingMonth BINGO card will help us plan our journey around Australia. You can use the card throughout November or apply it retrospectively to your reading year. Whatever works best for you.
