There are so many books to choose from in Booktopia’s 6th Birthday Sale, making a choice can be daunting.
I’m a bit of a fiction addict so we can start there.
Did I move too quickly? Sorry, did you want to select a couple of Crime Classics? Your wish is my command, we shall return whence we came – here is Agatha Christie, Ngaio Marsh and Arthur Conan Doyle.
From Fantasy to Romance is no great leap… look, our imaginations have beaten us there. Quickly, take up a few unfamiliar names and sit by me on the floor. I’ve never read Deirdre Purcell, have you? You have? Well then, in my basket goes Tell Me Your Secret on the strength of your recommendation.
Is your Basket full? No!?
Okay, there is still time, though keep in mind the stocks are being whittled away as we go.
All the sale books are so inexpensive!
Tomorrow we’ll be back for more!
About the Contributor
While still in his twenties, John Purcell opened a second-hand bookshop in Mosman, Sydney, in which he sat for ten years reading, ranting and writing. Since then he has written, under a pseudonym, a series of very successful novels, interviewed hundreds of writers about their work, appeared at writers’ festivals, on TV (most bizarrely in comedian Luke McGregor’s documentary Luke Warm Sex) and has been featured in prominent newspapers and magazines. Now, as the Director of Books at booktopia.com.au, Australia’s largest online bookseller, he supports Australian writing in all its forms. He lives in Sydney with his wife, two children, three dogs, five cats, unnumbered gold fish and his overlarge book collection. His novel, The Girl on the Page, will be published by HarperCollins Australia in October, 2018.
