Recommend books for your public library

Recommend books for your public library

Did you even know that you could recommend books for your local library? One of the things that has surprised me is that public libraries, even in Australia, will buy Christian fiction or Christian books. US libraries have HUGE Christian or clean fiction sections.

Reviews – the how and where

Reviews – the how and where

I have previously written a post on the ‘why’ of reviews. If you are convinced enough to want to help your favourite author in this way, sometimes it is still not enough. Many first-time reviewers need to be guided through the process. Below I will list the main sites that would help me personally. You DO NOT have to do all of them. If you are reviewing in multiple places, then you can just copy and paste the same review…

Top reads 2021

2021 is the fifth year that I’ve kept a file on my top Christian reads for the year. You can follow my reviews on Goodreads or BookBub.
