You know the standard introduction.

Finally figured out how to give myself a proper name.

I'm Suzie from Melbourne. Been blogging for five years, trying to support my selling of pre-loved books with some healthy SEO but the blogging took over and now I have very few books to sell.

Could everyone put their links in their signatures. I need to do some rules, but to help people look at your work and follow you we need your Facebook, website, Twitter, GoodReads or whatever combination of accounts you have.

Hi, guys! I've met some of you already via FB, but I'm Kat and I blog at bookthingo.com.au. I read mostly romance books, and I almost always read the back of the book first. I also host a monthly podcast called Heart to Heart, and I edit Booktopia's Romance Buzz. I'm looking forward to checking out some new book blogs from this forum, and especially Australian romance blogs!

Hi, I'm Michelle from Adelaide and I blog at

http://mrsmichelles.wordpress.com/

At the moment I'm only reviewing books for Random House.  One day I would love to review for other publishing houses. 

What I love most about reviewing books is the huge range of books that I am privileged to read. And most of the time the books I have enjoyed the most are ones that I wouldn't normally pick up and read!

Thanks for setting up this website and forum - I have so much to learn and everyone seems very generous with their time and opinions. :D

I'm Michelle (yes, another Michelle - we're everywhere) and I write about golden oldies, as well as new releases and more at www.booktothefuture.com.au. Occasionally, you'll find me reviewing stuff over at Newtown Review of Books as well (go take a look! They're at www.newtownreviewofbooks.com.au). I live in Western Sydney, and I've been blogging for four years now.

Huge thanks to Suzie for setting up this site!

I think I know most of you already but for anyone I don't know yet... I'm Bree, I'm from Melbourne and I've been blogging for about four years. I blog at http://1girl2manybooks.wordpress.com/

I like to read pretty much everything and I usually sign up for more challenges than I can possibly ever succeed in finishing

Hello all

I'm Deborah from Hervey Bay in Queensland. I've been blogging for over 5 years about a range of stuff - but merged some blogs earlier this year into debbish.com.

I blog about books there @ http://www.debbish.com/category/books-literature/

I really only read fiction and am a lover of crime / mysteries / thrillers.

I'm an avid reader and always have been - though I force myself to take a reading detox and have a few days off sometimes!

My name's Tony, and I'm an Englishman exiled (voluntarily) in Melbourne.  My blog, Tony's Reading List, began life at the start of 2009, and it has evolved to be focused primarily on literary fiction in translation.  English-language books?  Not so much ;)

The blog's at: http://tonysreadinglist.blogspot.com.au/

Your blog (and a few great bloggers in the UK) have inspired me to read more translations, but I'm not doing as well as everyone else.  :P

I write a blog about writing. It just so happens that that means I sometimes review books, too. Old books, new books, strange books, plain books. Basically anything I've read and felt review-worthy.

I've met a number of you at Random House's book bloggers event a few months ago and others on the intarwebz, principally Twitter.

Wade.

G'day there

I am Sally and I live in Darwin and own the blog Books and Musings from Downunder: http://sallyfromoz.wordpress.com

My second home is on Goodreads as Sally906

I have been blogging since December 2006 - always been Books and Musings but started off on Blogger and have moved to Wordpress.   It is still a work in progress as I have never been able to make up my mind as to (a) why I am doing it, and (b) where I want it to go. I do know I have made lots of friends through it.

Anyhow, eventually I'll figure out how to do a signature but for now I am just introducing myself  :)
