It is subject to being changed or added to as the year goes by.

Note: The definition of who is Tasmanian is a bit flexible, perhaps in the same way as who is Australian. The challenge acknowledges this. But just as Australians frequently adopt and rebrand New Zealanders once they are successful, I may be doing the same with some folks from the big island. If anyone on my list that I have co-opted to being Tasmanian objects to the label I am more than happy to change it … and still read the book with a positive mindset.
