The British Books Challenge is something that Becky over at The Bookette is hosting and this challenge is about supporting British writers by reading their books throughout 2011. I should stress that you don't have to *BE* British in order to participate in this challenge and the books can be old or new and any genre. They don't even have to be YA. As an added incentive, there will be prize packs up for grabs exclusively for challenge entrants. If you're interested in taking part, click here for more information.
I have to say that I wasn't going to sign up for this challenge as I tend to read a lot of US books but I've had a sudden change of heart. I've read quite a few books by UK authors recently (Finding Sky by Joss Stirling and Before I Die by Jenny Downham for example) and loved them. Let's also not forget that I am a UK blogger after all and I love the idea of supporting British writers so I'm in. I've got a few books lined up and I'll make sure I mention in the review if it is a British book. I'm actually looking forward to the challenge and I hope you'll join me in supporting British writing talent :)
