New Zealand Book Month book a day challenge

dairy 10010

October is New Zealand Book Month – anyone keen to post on a book a day for the month, starting on Thursday?

That’s only 31 books and 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.

Or, if you’ve written a book yourself,  and are in to shameless self-promotion, you could post about your own book 31 times.

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

    I’ll give it a go, ‘though I may specialise and work on children’s books.

  2. Rob Hosking says:

    Yeah, count me in….do they have to be fiction, though?

    ‘Cos Bollard and Buckle’s “Economic Liberalisation in New Zealand’ is a real page turner. And Malcolm McKinnon History of the NZ Treasury will have you on the edge of your seat.

  3. homepaddock says:

    Delighted you’re both accepting the challenge.

    Any NZ book for any age, fact or fiction, accepted.

    I’ll take your word on the page-turning and seat-edging properties of those two tomes though, Rob.
