BW10: Bicycles, beaches and books






As Summer gives way to Autumn in Australia and New Zealand, I have beach reads and bicycle trips on the brain as well as romance.  In my meanderings around the interwebz I stumbled across the Aussie Authors Month, typically held in April, which not only lead me to Australia's Indigenous Literacy Foundation, but also Goodreads Aussie Readers group and their March reads as well as their Autumn Challenge

The Autumn challenge includes reading books to match up with events taking place during the season including today which is clean up Australia day (reuse/recycle) so the task is to read a book from your stacks or a book from the library. Check out the challenge and join in.  

I also stumbled across Romance Writers of Australia which has a long list of Romance Authors, along with their websites.  Surprisingly, I've only read Keri Arthur, one of my favorite urban fantasy - paranormal authors and her Riley Jensen Guardian series. 

And for those who aren't into romance, check out Historical Novels for historical and mystery stories set in both countries, as well as Culture trips literary escape - Top Ten New Zealand Travel Reads and A Literary Tour of Melbourne

I had fun perusing the lists as well as Goodreads and adding a few new to me authors to my wishlists.

Happy reading!
