I posted the 1000th post on the booksellers blog today! Thank you to those who have contributed in the past, and those who continue to contribute. It is great fun to run the reviewing, and I must say I was grateful to have the backup when our website was on the rocks… I look forward to giving more great stuff in the future – keep an eye out for the next two weeks, as I have people in Dunedin and Auckland at the writer’s festivals (with I could go myself!)
