This month we are celebrating all of our male authors!

Any and all genres, but must be written by a male author.

Good luck xx

Karen GoatKeeper (goodreadscomkaren_goatkeeper) | 100 comments This challenge made me look at my book piles. it is amazing how many of them are by women authors.
So far I completed Weeds by Richard Mabey, an interesting look at the many international plants that travel with people from place to place.
Next completed is The Mountains Have a Secret by Arthur Upfield, another in the Napoleon Bonaparte Australian mystery series.
I have started A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson but it is in an unfair contest with Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
