CHALLENGE: Aussie Author Challenge 2011

Hosted at Booklover Book Reviews again this year, I'll join this one again after reading 4 books last year.

The Rules: 

The Challenge runs all year 2011

You can either be:
TOURIST - Read and review 3 books by 3 different Aussie Authors
TRUE BLUE - Read and review 12 books by Australian authors (at least 9 different authors)

Same as last year - I'll aim for True Blue, but expect I'll be a Tourist.
The host site, has a place for linking reviewed books, and a chat box. That sounds interesting!

Pool of Books: most of these were also on my list from last year, sigh

Geraldine Brooks - Year of Wonders
Peter Carey - The True History of the Kelly Gang
