As many of you are well aware, November is THE month for reading challenges, with FIVE that I know of vying for our attention.
Naturally, MY own challenge, AusReading Month gets top billing here, but I am keen to combine some of the other options, with my Australian books, if I can.
This means being a little organised.
I’m one day early, but this will be my sign up/introduction post for all FIVE book events happening around the world in November.
Tomorrow, the MASTERPOST for AusReading Month will go live with a linky for all your posts, reviews etc. The Masterpost will be set as the featured post on the right hand side of my blog, for those of you who use a computer or laptop, to make it easy to find throughout the month.
