So, we’re a few days into 2015. Hope it’s treating you well so far. I’m setting some goals for the year, particularly in terms of increasing the diversity in my reading. But first, lets look at some stats from last year.
Five star reviews: 8
Four star reviews: 16
Three star reviews: 12
Two star reviews: 2
One star reviews: 1
LGBT themes: 6
Writers of colour: 0
Yes, I’m horrified by that big old zero sitting there too. So, I’m going to double my efforts to read more Indigenous Australian writing and work by other writers of colour.
My goals for 2015:
Books to read: 50
Australian Women Writers Challenge: 10
Indigenous Australian & non-white authors: 10
I’m keen for recommendations for work by non-white writers. Lay them on me and I’ll get cracking. And while you’re at it, let me know what your goals are for the year.
