Some books for Christmas

If you are in Australia, you are about to enter into a long Summer break, and many of you will be looking for some lovely books to read during this period. It is also, of course, gift-giving time, and we always want something new for our bookish friends. So with these things in mind, Stephane Dowrick and I did something a little different for this month's episode of the Universal Heart Book Club. We each selected three books we thought might be just the thing, either as a thoughtful Christmas gift or as a lovely gift for yourself for reading during these hot summer days.
Have a look at the video here:

FYI, the books we selected were:

Belinda Castles' wonderfully rich novel Hannah & Emil

Sharon Snir's exquisitely inspirational The Little Book of Everyday Miracles

Stephanie Dowrick's own children's book The Moon Shines Out of the Dark.

Mark S. Burrows' exceptional new translation of Rainer Maria Rilke's Prayers of a Young Poet

Bem Le Hunte's There, Where the Pepper Grows 

Barbara Kingsolver's much-awaited new novel Flight Behaviour - Stephanie's "Book of the Year"
