Former leading New Zealand publisher and bookseller, and widely experienced judge of both the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Montana New Zealand Book Awards, talks about what he is currently reading, what impresses him and what doesn't, along with chat about the international English language book scene, and links to sites of interest to booklovers.
It’s National Library Week, and we’re
celebrating with recommendations from some of our favorite libraries and
librarians. We asked our librarian followers on Twitter to tell us the
books they can’t stop talking about, and they did not disappoint. From
gripping psychological thrillers to powerful young adult novels to
chilling horror stories, this list proves that there’s no better place to
go for book recommendations than your local library.
