2011 British Books Challenge


As a British blogger I have to sign up for this one to show support for British authors.  The lovely Becky from The Bookette is hosting this challenge and you can find all the information you need to take part in the challenge here

As I'm British I'm doing the home grown challenge which means I need to read 12 books by British authors as the books can be old or new I'm hoping to read a lot more than 12 but we'll have to see how I get on.

  3. Hi Becky, thanks so much for organising this one - it's a great idea to help support British authors! If I look through my to read pile I'm sure I'll find quite a few more books already on there by British authors so it should be quite easy to manage to read 12 books in a year :o) I'm looking forward to taking part in the challenge
