New Zealand Book Month Challenge

Keeping Stock (sadly, but understandably, in retirement) started the post-a-day for New Zealand Music Month challenge.

In the spirit of that, September is  New Zealand Book Month  – anyone keen to post on a book a day?

It doesn’t have to be a full review. The name, author and/or a little about the book, and/or the author and/or why you like it or not, will suffice.

If you need some inspiration, NZ History Online has 30 reasons to love NZ books and writing.

I’m planning to do a New Zealand book post each day for the month, starting on Tuesday, which is the first of September. I’m posting this now to give you some time to think about whether you want to accept the challenge.

    But I would be happy to review ANOTHER NZ book if you want to post that!

    I had in mind one of my favorites “Oracles and Miracles”

    (Bet you didn’t see that one coming!)

    Oswald – I don’t want to be responsible for the shooting of any books but the idea is for anyone who accepts the challenge to write, on their blog, a post on a NZ book each day for September.

    People without blogs could make their contribution as a comment.

    I had meant a different book but if you want to post 30 different things about your book, go for it.
