Friday on my Mind

This week the Miles Franklin Award announced a first for the short listed award books, they were all written by Australian Women Authors.http://www.milesfranklin.com.au/2013/2013_shortlist

The Mile Franklin Award was established in 1957 from the estate of Stella Miles Franklin the author of My Brilliant Career. A history of the award is viewable on the award page.History of the award.

I haven’t read any of the nominated books as yet, but the selections all look very interesting.

I think I will try and get a copy of Mateship with Birds to read first, as I have been reading some lovely reviews about it recently. I just wished I knew about the fabulous reading challenge and prize – winning a set of some of the previous award winners. That is a book lovers dream, ooh la la! Have you read any of the nominated books?
