Have you been to Books at 60 on Facebook yet?

If not, you’re missing out on plenty of great reviews- along with bonus blogs and updates which don’t appear on the Starts at 60 Facebook page or website. In the last week, we’ve covered:

  • A blog about the suspicious “congratulations!” email which was not a scam – and scored $US150,000 for the recipient.
  • Sad news on the deaths of authors Louise Rennison and Pat Conroy and
  • Amusing posts on National Grammar Day.
  • The Stella Prize Longlist.

Each day, in addition to bringing you a book review, we plan to also publish either a book blog or book meme.

Some blogs will share the latest recommendations from our sponsors Hachette Australia and Dymocks, as we feel this is a great way to keep you up to date with new releases across many genres and interests.

In addition, you will find a minimum of 3 full and detailed book reviews a week, written by our dedicated reviewers.

Then there is Saturday on the Couch where various contributors write about bookish topics such as the piles of books living in our homes, what books mean to the blogger, books about books, and blogs from favourite authors some specially written for Books at 60, or their blogs which they kindly allow us to reproduce for you.

I am so thrilled with the look of Books at 60, the logo is clean and crisp and the image features words from the awesome Jane Austen, my favourite classical author.

So don’t be out of the book loop, come over to the Books at 60 Facebook page and click ‘like’ – or sign up for our weekly email update below to join the conversation!

Looking forward to vibrant discussions – cheers!

Karen O'Brien-Hall

I've had many careers in my life and loved each one! My new career blossomed when I retired and become an OAP. I am passionate about childhood literacy, books in general and my garden. I love Ballet, Opera, Concerts, Theatre, (both professional and community) and Movies. I tend to have opinions on most things and enjoy a good debate about the topic, not the person. In my thirties, I married my GOM (Gorgeous or Grumpy Old Man) the love of my life.
