Sunday Salon - 20 March 2011, 'bin travellin'

We've spent this weekend in Melbourne, and waiting in airports and flights (even though Adelaide to Melbourne is relatively short), and loads of free time, always means a bit of extra reading.

Yesterday we visited my favourite second hand bookshop in Melbourne, Kill City, and came away with a copy of  MURDER IN PARADISE  by Ann Cleeves. A very apt title for this blog!

There was great excitement in our household at the beginning of the week. Visit  Brand New Addition and you'll see why.

  • Have you caught up with Fair Dinkum Crime yet?
    Fair Dinkum Crime is hosted by two Adelaide-based book bloggers, Kerrie and Bernadette, who are fans of Australian crime fiction. The site is a place for their reviews of Australian crime fiction to be highlighted and includes author interviews, news, award updates and anything else relevant to Australian crime fiction.
    By invitation, reviews of Australian crime fiction written by other bloggers are also incorporated into Fair Dinkum Crime, either by linking from here or by re-publishing here (always with the blogger's permission). If you have reviewed a work of Australian crime fiction and would like a link or copy of the review posted on Fair Dinkum Crime please email us.
