    What a fab idea. I can’t participate as I am not an Aussie, but I will follow the hop!

    Thanks for the opportunity – I look forward to participating! Can the entries be from around the world or only Aus residents eligible to win prizes?

    Hope you have fun Shelleyrae – I decided a while ago not to participate in giveaways as the winners always seem to be people who only ever come to the blog for that one post – the giveaway – and while it’s nice to have extra numbers that’s not really my reason for blogging – instead I just send the books I’ve read to regular visitors when I can :)

      fair enough Bernadette – though my goal with this giveaway is to connect Aussie readers, not earn extra followers :)

    Hi Shelleyrae,

    Just wanted to say many thanks for organising this – I understand it’s a lot of work. It was great to have such a good response to the giveaway and to learn about other book bloggers. Also a great way to promote Australian writers.
