I’ve just been catching up on podcasts, and listening to the Jomad episode where Lefa Singleton Norton guests. In it, they talk about reading goals for 2012, and Lefa mentioned the Australian Women Writer’s challenge. I’ve only just become aware of this, but more research shows that it seems to be Quite A Thing.
So, I’m in. I promise to make an effort to read more Australian women writers this year. So far, two our of my seven books read this year are Australian women, so a pretty favourable ratio.
I’m not deciding now which books I plan to read, but I do plan to make a more concentrated effort to read Australian women. Cuz I am one, and I think it’s important.
My pledge, pledged.
