Australian Women Writers Challenge 2012- Challenge Complete

Well, it ‘s almost the end of 2012 and of the Australian Women Writers Reading & Reviewing Challenge.

Here at Nowra Library we displayed and promoted books written by Aussie women for most of 2012, with great success. Loans and circulation of these books increased noticeably throughout the year and it was great to see a wide range of borrowers walk out the door with newly discovered Australian reads.

Similarly, members of library staff who read and contributed reviews for the challenge also made new literary discoveries. Here is a list of the reviews published here at The Readers’ Haven throughout 2012:

Good Oil by Laura Buzo – Jessica
Sea Hearts by Margo Lanagan- Kelly
Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth- Kelly
The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton- Gail
The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet by Colleen McCullough – Marie
The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton- Nicole
The Precipice by Virginia Duigan- Sarah
Tiger Men by Judy Nunn- Marie

  1. Congratulations on completing the challenge and thank you so much for your support for the challenge throughout the year. I hope you’ll also sign up for #aww2013 and make use of the new database of reviews. (Links to your reviews should appear on it, if you’ve kept adding your links on the AWW website.)

    I hope the new database will become a valuable library resource that you can direct readers towards when they’re looking for new or old titles to read in all genres. The page for new releases can be found here: http://auswomenwriters.weebly.com/2012-releases.html

  3. I too need to add my congratulations for completing! It’s always wonderful to see the promotion of Australian women writers, and many thanks for your great efforts on this front.
    I was also wondering if you’ve seen our feedback survey?

    It’s very quick (10 questions, mostly check boxes, takes 2 minutes), and will provide useful feedback to Bookseller & Publisher.

    Kind regards,
    Jessica.
