    Lots and lots of Aussie books on my shelves (of course!). Yesterday, I went to the library and brought back ‘My Brilliant Career’ by Miles Franklin, ‘Carpentaria’ by Alexis Wright and ‘Mr. Scobie’s Riddle’ by Elizabeth Jolley – killing three birds (or challenges!) with one stone 😉

    Loved your post, Stu! Australian Literature Month is a really wonderful idea! I find that for some reasons Australian writers are under-represented in reading lists and in awards and so readers’ awareness of them is quite low. This is a good time to learn more about Australian literature.

    Thanks for the shout out, Stu. It seems like many bloggers are reading Bereft at the moment. I’ve got two copies in my queue — the Australian edition AND the British edition. I suspect I will give one of them away via the blog in the next week or so…
