Australian Women Writers Challenge 2012- Authors on Kindle

Updated on January 13, 2012

I'm participating in the Australian Women Writers Challenge 2012. I've found that reading books on my iPad during my long train commute to and from work is the best way to go (full disclosure: I am an Amazon Affiliate. I haven't made any money from Amazon yet, and I don't rely on it for income. I just hope this list is helpful to other participants in the Challenge).

With my iPad and laptop in tow, I can bring so many other things in my tight computer bag without bulky books as well. More importantly, eBooks are lighter on the budget. As a bonus, although my husband puts up with having books all over the house (on the floor, under the tables, and spilling out of bookshelves), eBooks have so far been good for our cluttered house.

I've compiled a list of Aussie Female Authors whose books are on Kindle. This has been very useful for my reading list, but I hope can also be used by anyone else participating in the Challenge, and all book lovers eager to read more books written by Australian women. I've also published this list as @CATTorresV on Twitter.

My reviews in this challenge can be read on my website

Do let me know if you'd like to add any names to the list, or if there are any inaccuracies!
