    HI Stu, thanks for the link. I checked their catalogue and picked Tiny Sunbirds Far Away. Have bought an e version and will try and get it read and reviewed in time.

    I signed up for the mailing list. The site is a bit of a bugger to negotiate. I bought SPIES after your review as I have read other wonderful books by that author

    I’ve been lucky enough to get a fair few review copies from them over the past couple of months, so I’m sure I’ll be reviewing some before too long (probably not until Feb though).

    Of course, after my ‘Accabadora’ review, that flow of ARCs will probably start to dry up 😉

    Yes, I’m in too, as long as the Book Depository deliver it on time. (They’re usually pretty good). The Maclehose site is awful, I really wanted to choose a book in translation by an African writer but there’s no way to search for that except to go through the whole catalogue. So I settled for Monsieur Linh and His Child by Philippe Claudel, which looks quite interesting.
