Readers’ advisory: it’s a small world
The NoveList team is super-excited about an upcoming webinar for those who work in libraries in Australia and New Zealand. Although US attendees will have a late night (no worries, we’ll record!), anyone with readers’ advisory on the brain will benefit from sharing ideas, no matter the time zone. It’s a small world, isn’t it, and so many readers’ advisory issues are universal.

Old town roads to love
With August bringing us Bookstore Romance Day, (and Read a Romance month in North America) we thought it was a good time to revisit the rich atmosphere, strong features and independent heroines of Australian rural romances.

Visiting libraries in Australia and New Zealand
I’m lucky enough to get to travel to Australia and New Zealand and visit their public libraries as part of my work with NoveList. Even half a world away, I still felt quite “at home” in those libraries. The sense of belonging is there when I walk in: a table display featuring new releases, the circ desk, and a welcoming atmosphere. While I’m literally on the other side of the earth, walking into those libraries feels like walking into my home library.

Australian Crime Fiction
Jane Harper’s Aaron Falk series continues to rack up awards and long hold lines at the library. Fortunately for all of us on the waiting list, Australian crime fiction has a lot to offer.
