Lazy Book of the Week: a plug for Slightly Addicted to Fiction

We haven't been to the library this week and so have been trawling our way through old favourites, most often Toddle Waddle and Shirley Hughes' Chatting, Giving, and Bouncing. So I don't have a book to recommend today, but thought instead that I'd mention the book blog to end all others: Slightly Addicted to Fiction.

Its authored by one of the lovely ladies my Mum used to work with at CMIS; she is now a judge for the Children's Book Council Book of the Year awards. Her prolific website is full of information about books, publishing, reviews and literary awards, with a particular emphasis on children's fiction. Each week she has a list of links to articles about books/authors/awards that have  recently appeared in  newspapers, magazines and journals. Today she has a post about Australian authors because April is Aussie Author Month.

If you're trying to decide on a book for a present and need some inspiration, or are wondering what to read next yourself, her site is well worth a visit.
