Greetings from Melbourne, book lovers! It is much colder here, 1,000km south of our home, but we have been blessed with beautiful sunshine for the most part, even if there’s a definite chill in the air. Of course, being on holidays has meant less time for blogging this week, and you will notice there’s been less happening around here, but I have still been having some bookish fun, especially meeting up with Rel from Relz Reviewz at Koorong, Australia’s largest Christian bookseller:
We may have spotted some familiar faces on the shelves, too:
