Miles Bookclub

By: | Tags: , | Comments: 0

Miles Bookclub will meet 10am, Saturday 7 September 2019 to discuss The Cartographer by Peter Twohig. Melbourne, 1959. An 11-year-old boy witnesses a murder as he spies through the window of a strange house.

With only a shady grandfather, […]

Moonie Bookclub members enjoyed the fabulous novels The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion so much that we have bought a set of The Rosie Result to donate to Western Downs Libraries. If you’d like the bookclub set, you can loan it here. It has the same fantastic characters and easy reability of the previous novels so we hope you enjoy it as much as we did! For those that have not already visited this triology we highly recommend you start at the beginning with The Rosie […]

How do you choose a book?

By: | Tags: , , , , | Comments: 0

Why do some books fly off the shelves while others sit and gather dust? It’s all about the cover. The book cover plays a prominent role in our decision to borrow a book.   A cover or jacket’s ability to catch our eye and draw us in can often make or break a book’s success.  We use book covers to determine the worth of a book, the kind of story that might be told within, and whether or not we should take it seriously and borrow the book from the […]
