  1. What can I say? You are amazing, Shelleyrae.

    In case others who visit this page don’t realise, Shelleyrae helped me set up the challenge right from the start, created badges and banners, offered constant support, tweeted up a storm, joined the new AWW team and worked behind the scenes on the AWW blog and review listings website and spreadsheets, coordinated the AWW GoodReads page, interviewed and promoted authors online and locally…

    Somewhere, amid all that, she managed to read and review 100 books by Australian women in 2012.

    Outstanding isn’t a big enough word for your contribution to the AWW challenge this year, Shelleyrae. Thank you.
