reading revival ... poetry and criticism ... with this blog i'm aiming to stimulate discussion and sales of australian poetry. there'll be a new book every quarter. three months to order, read and discuss books online .. or in a book group (start one). the books chosen will be ones that i think deserve more attention, and that i think are great. they won't be brand new, but will have appeared since 2000. i'll give links for online bookshops and info on the book. to make sure anyone can obtain a book, an option is to send me a cheque, and i'll send you a copy: allow four weeks approx in australia, say six weeks outside. the books will generally be in print, so you can order from your local bookshop in australia. the blog will be launched soon, with an email announcement, and possibly a live one ...

Great idea:-Here in Perth it is easy enough to get most books in print but it is often difficult to find reviews of books from smaller presses. Good luck with your venture and I would like to be involved. Fran
