In case you are in a buying mood this weekend…………………
The new issue of newbooks magazine (issue 85 Summer 2015) has just been published. Why the shameless plug? Well…………..Inside you will find a double page spread about the setting up of this very blog together with my blog post “Keeping The Libraries Open!” I have also contributed two exclusive reviews which have not appeared anywhere else. One is my suggestion for the Best Book of The 21st Century (so far), Michel Faber’s “The Crimson Petal And The White” and the other is the newly published “Wolf Wolf” by South African writer Eben Venter.
Also in the magazine is an interview with the Pulitzer Prize winning Anthony Doerr, YA author Jandy Nelson also David Mitchell, Erica James, Frederick Backman, Rosie Thomas and much more. There’s also the opportunity to get hold of seven of the featured books for free (just by paying the postage!).
If you’ve never read newbooks magazine it is one of the few print magazines for readers and reading groups. If you haven’t seen it for a while it had a relaunch three issues back and is now better than it has ever been before with so much to read.
