I found today that on the Get Reading website they have been releasing Australia's Top 100 Favourite Reads. They are releasing them gradually all week and it looks as if there are some interesting books on the list so far.

Here is the link:

How many have you read?

For any fellow Aussie's in this group I am so excited to have found out that we are getting our own Book Expo next year in Sydney's Olympic Park.
Here's the website link with all the details:

I found this link recently which lists some clever gifts for book lovers. I would be happy with pretty much any gift listed here. If only hubby would get the hint!

This morning I found some more fun links:

I love some of these and I'm sure most of us will find quite a few that are relevant.

and;

I would love absolutely any of these and wish I was creative enough and had the room in our house for any of these!

Has anyone seen this website before?

http://www.whatshouldireadnext.com/

You enter in either a book title or author and it gives you a list of recommendations on what to read next based on what you entered.

I warn you that it is one of those nasty sites that will mean an increase in your TBR list if you decide to have a play around with it :-)

A list of 10 words with difficult to remember meaning:

http://mentalfloss.com/article/58543/...

Some of these always stump me if I encounter them while reading.

Are you like me and just keep reading if you encounter a hard word and hope that it's meaning will come to you, or do you like to stop and look up words to see what they actually mean before moving on?
