Considering I've got 3 other reading challenges planned for 2011, and I've never taken part in a challenge before, I was surprised to find myself entering this challenge, created by Becky over at The Bookette. However, as I read it I thought 'I can do this'. I'm pretty sure I'll definitely read 12 books by British authors. I can't post up any titles just yet, but I will post them up as I read them.
I'm aiming for 50 books. Given the amount I read in a year (which I think might be over 300, but I'm not quite sure), 50 is a reasonable amount.
I think this is an awesome idea, and full credit to Becky for organising it all (including fun competitions to win British Books for participants!)
