A slower week, with only two books finished, although I’ve started a couple of others. (I’ve never been good at finishing one book before starting another) I started with a fabulous crime novel which mixed detectives and paramedics with Cold Justice by Katherine Howell, then finished up with a story of finding your place in the adult world while coming to terms with the past, by reading Holier than Thou by Laura Buzo. Both were fabulous books, so although I didn’t read a lot this week, I think I read well!
I also read and reviewed some more books for Squirm. I think I will enter them in as a separate ‘person’ in the challenge. They’re very different to the books I’ve reading as an adult, and I review them in a very different way. While ‘regular’ reviews of Australian Women Writers are important, book reviews which offer activities and lesson ideas are also essential – getting books by Australian Women Writers into classrooms and to be used with early childhood is important to help us increase the diversity of reading in our children’s lives.
