2020 is a new year, with lots of new Aussie authors to discover (and lots of "old" waiting to be read!). We are extremely lucky to have a lot of talented writers here in our lovely country.

So this year, in one of our Australian Authors only challenges, we are going to have some fun - bring on the Annual Bingo Challenge 2020!




The Rules:
#1. Aussie Authors ONLY
#2
. Read a minimum of two (2) rows - either across or down but not diagonal
#3. Where the squares overlap (if they do) you must read that square twice.
#4. Choose your rows and your LEVEL; then list (and link) your books in this challenge thread.

Make sure you check out the challenge guidelines here

There are four (4) levels of achievement:

Shelf (10 books - 2 rows)
Bookcase (15 books - 3 rows)
Library (20 books - 4 rows)
To Infinity and beyond (25 books - 5 rows)

I think it’s a very broadly and loosely defined genre, that could range from realistic future/sci-fi through to the type of thing that I like, which is imagined history grounded in factual figures or events (an example that springs to mind is Burial Rites).

That’s my 2 cents!

Speculative fiction - I had to google it. Its a broad genre, can include things like dystopian / utopian fiction, steam-punk
