** June 2013 Challenge – Miles Franklin and/or TBR list! **

The Aussie Readers group on Goodreads has the June Challenge – Miles Franklin and/or TBR list!;

DRUM ROLL……2013 Miles Franklin announcement 19th June
Part of your challenge for June is to read at least one Miles Franklin winner or nominee either from 2013 or past lists. Then, as our TBR lists continue to grow at an alarming rate, try to lower them as much as you can this month…incorporate the Miles Franklin titles into your TBR if at all possible:)

From Miles Franklin’s will;

‘[the] prize shall be awarded for the Novel for the year which is of the highest literary merit and which must present Australian Life in any of its phases …’.

* 2013 Short List
* 2013 Long List
* Past winners list

I’ll wait until the 19th and add the 2013 Miles Franklin winner.

Questions Michelle de Kretser – Questions of Travel
A mesmerising literary novel, Questions of Travel charts two very different lives. Laura travels the world before returning to Sydney, where she works for a publisher of travel guides. Ravi dreams of being a tourist until he is driven from Sri Lanka by devastating events.
Around these two superbly drawn characters, a double narrative assembles an enthralling array of people, places and stories – from Theo, whose life plays out in the long shadow of the past, to Hana, an Ethiopian woman determined to reinvent herself in Australia.
