happy autumn… and march’s book bargain

Greetings readers,

Happy Autumn. My favourite season is finally here. Changing leaves… milder weather… comfier clothes… love, love, love

This month’s book bargain is Caroline Alexander’s The Bounty. Now, I usually don’t do non fiction but I’ve had this on my ‘to read’ list for a while. So, when The Book Grocer asked if I could review it this month I thought I’d kill two birds with one stone and said, “yes!”. Head over to the Northcote store to pick it up for $10.

The non fiction reader in me is a slower reader than its fiction counterpart so I’m stretching this one out over two months. So far, so good. Alexander’s writing is informative yet still absorbing and the book is jam packed full of enthralling action. Non fiction and fiction lovers alike need to give this book a go…

Stay tuned. Full review coming next month.

’til next time.

Hear ye, hear ye! My friends at The Book Grocer in Northcote and I have put our heads together to bring you guys something a lil spesh every month (thanks Jess!). Once a month I’ll review one of my favourite books from the store and you’ll be able to wander on over (or hop online) and pick it up at a pretty smashing price! Peachy… I know.

This month it’s one from a master of the modern novel: Kafka on the Shore by Murakami. As a rather large Murakami fan (yes, self pronounced), I can’t wait to get my teeth stuck into this one.

Watch this space…
