I enjoy a good challenge and so far I have committed to four for 2013.
The first is, of course, the challenge I am hosting for the second year -

The Australian Women Writers Challenge 2013
Last year I read 109 books for the challenge, this year I have no specific aim but as I plan to continue my features of Australian women writers and I am one of the curators for the challenge I expect I will still read quite a few, certainly more the maximum challenge goal allows for – probably within the month LOL
The challenge runs from January 1, 2013 and ends December 31, 2013.

Aussie Author Challenge 2013
I completed this challenge successfully last year and I aim to do so again this year. Jo’s aim this year is to encourage balanced and diverse reading. I am aiming for the Fair Dinkum level.
- 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.
Monthly Key Word Challenge 2013
In this challenge, ten key words are associated with each month in 2013. Your task is to read one book each month whose title includes one or more of the key words for that month. For instance, in January you could read Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah. The key words are listed below.
What challenges are you signed up for this year?
