Booklover Bric-a-Brac – March 2011


star I have received quite a few review requests lately and unfortunately have been unable to accept them all due to other commitments right now. One such offer was from Boolarong Press, a small, independent publishing company based in my hometown of Brisbane, Australia.  The title available for review, Granville: A Mother’s Grief ( A Memoir) by debut author June Ollerenshaw struck me as something that might especially interest some of my fellow Aussie readers.

For international readers, the Granville Train Disaster of 1977 is the worst rail disaster in Australian history – 83 people died and more than 210 were injured.

star Regular readers will recall I was very impressed with my pre-Christmas experience purchasing used books from the BetterWorld Books Bargain Bin but lamenting that postage was added on to their keen pricing for customers outside the US.

Great news – the BetterWorld Books Bargain Bin is now back with free postage. Now when you purchase 3 or more used books from the 35,000+ titles in their Bargain  Bin you will only pay $5.00 USD per title. That sure beats ebay!

star For anyone like me eagerly anticipating the release of the movie version of David Nicholls bestselling novel One Day starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, check out the official movie poster.
