2013 ABIA Awards

2013 Australian Book Industry Awards have announced its winners. Sometimes I do feel the awards from the industry might be biased on best sellers list rather than literary values. However when you look the list of winners there are some good reads there. Surely you’d appreciate and enjoy reading them.

Parramatta City Library has all the titles for loan and title’s like The light between oceans has  been discussed by one of our reading groups The 1st Wed Reading Group and the group’s comments are on the blog.
