Weekend Book Buzz – 16/17 September 2017

Weekend Book Buzz

It’s been a busy weekend for me this weekend, with a flying visit (literally and figuratively!) to Melbourne to see TWO of my favourite groups in concert together. If you’re a fan of a cappella vocal music and you’ve never heard of Australian vocal group The Idea of North, or Swedish vocal group The Real Group, then you need to fix that pronto!

But that’s probably not why you’re here, and there’s plenty of bookish news to share too, so let’s get down to business, eh?

  2. Love the weekend update! Once the the beginning of the school-year chaos settles (almost there…), I’ll be able to check in more often. In the meantime, I appreciate being able to catch up on everything in one sitting. Thank you!
