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 officially winter which means most
of our activities will take place in the warmth of our homes, likely
beneath layers and layers of sweaters and blankets. But to keep us from
catching the winter blues, we’ll be spending most of our winter days
doing what a book lover does best: reading books and talking about them.
If you’ve yet to join a book club, winter is the perfect season to join
one or start one. And the books on this list are the winter book club
picks we’re recommending. From dysfunctional family dramas to inspiring
cultural movements—these books + wine + good conversation will keep you
warm this winter.
