That’s a Wrap #AusReadingMonth2021

AusReading Month Badge

Bravo! And thank you one and all for all your stellar reading, reviewing and commenting throughout November.

We’ve had well over 50 books read and reviewed, with many of you cleverly combining events by reading Australian novellas and Australian non-fiction.

I’m afraid that my grand ideas for reading a BINGO card fell through once again. I think it’s time to acknowledge that I’m just not good at completing such things! I had also hoped to squeeze in one more review yesterday (to make a nice round number of 10), but I was exhausted after two HUGE days at work. My final AusReading Month book deserves far more than the rush job it would have been if I had attempted it last night, so watch this space.

If, like me, you ran out of time or energy to complete one final review, don’t panic! I will add any last minute reviews up until the 3rd December.

When you have the time, please visit the posts below. You may just find the book you really want to read next AusReading Month!

      1. Apologies for the confusion; it was a fun read, and I’m kind of glad I switched from Snugglepot which I had originally planned to pick up. I hope I can plan better next year and fit in more than one especially seeing everyone’s very interesting picks.

  2. Well done on another successful Ausreading month, I enjoyed my game of Bingo. The grandkids challenge me to Bingo occasionally – I really must buy them a Scrabble set this xmas. There’s a few reviews listed here I intend following up, especially a couple of N@ncy’s , though not the cookbooks!


    1. Thanks Bill & thank you for your contributions. I’m glad that one of your reviews has started you down the path of your Gen 4 week preparations as well.

      I’m a scrabble fiend, but no-one will play with me anymore!


  3. I really enjoyed taking part again, thank you for running it and for pulling together all the links so well! I’m having a month off reading challenges, apart from my on-going TBR and the end of my Anne Tyler challenge, and looking forward to starting my 2022 one!


    1. Thank you for your two very different contributions this year Liz.
      I did wonder what I was doing taking on another reading week so soon, but slipping into a Rumer Godden this week has been the perfect antidote to a busy November.
