Sunday Salon - Sunday 23 January 2011 - great Australian reading

Hello fellow Sunday Saloners

My reading went very well this week.
I need to tell you that I have come across 2 new Australian crime fiction writers to watch.
Postings this week on MiP - I've managed to restrain myself to just over 1 a day.
Today I posted the first edition of the Agatha Christie Blog Carnival for 2011, part of the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge.  Even if you just read and review the occasional Agatha Christie novel, you can take part. Find out how.

Reading so far in January 2011 - looks like I might make 15 books for the month.

I'm really impressed Kerrie.

I am sorely tempted to try Alan Carter, but what I need for the global challenge is New Zealand.
