Weekend Book Buzz – 23/24 September 2017

Weekend Book Buzz

Welcome to the weekend! Hope it’s a good one, wherever you are. In my part of Australia we seemed to have skipped spring and gone straight to summer. Today is mid-30s (85-95 degrees Fahrenheit) with a warm, gusty wind. Ick! Nice day to be inside checking out all the bookish news!
