From the challenge site:
The challenge is as follows:
Australian participants – Read at least 12 young adult books by Australian authors from 1st January, 2011 to 31st December, 2011.
International participants – Read at least 6 young adult books by Australian authors from 1st January, 2011 to 31st December, 2011.
They can be old or new titles, however no re-reads.
It is open to everyone. You don’t have to be a blogger but you MUST POST A REVIEW. Reviews can be posted anywhere – Blogs, Goodreads, Shelfari or non-bloggers can even do a guest post on a blog like mine.
You can join anytime. The challenge runs from 1st January 2011 to 31st December, 2011.
There will be prizes throughout the year and guest posts and interviews from some awesome Aussie authors.
If you sign up by the 25th January, 2011 you could be the lucky winner of one of the following titles, thanks to Nomes at Inkcrush. These are some of Nomes’ favourite titles that are available internationally. Open to everyone as long as The Book Depository ships to you.
Create a post for the challenge listing some of the titles you are wanting to read (you don’t have to list them all just post some ideas of what you are thinking of reading) and link back to this post.
Place one of the buttons or create your own in the side bar of your blog.

In spite of being an international participant and being only required to read six books to complete this challenge, I’m planning to go for the Australian participant level. I’m going to read the Ranger’s Apprentice series that my brother has been pestering me about for ages. It contains ten books to date and I’m sure it will be a breeze to find two more books to complete the challenge. :-)
