Sunday Reading ….. Let’s get #thinking

It’s been a big week. Kevin Rudd dismally lost the challenge to Julia Gillard on Monday, Bob Carr took the reigns of foreign minister and we had our #laugh twitter book club discussion.  So this Sunday, have a break and get reading!  We have some exciting #think recommendations on the way for this month’s discussion, but here is one to get you started that’s quite suited to NYR and the events of this week….

Bob Carr reads. And he reads a lot. He openly expresses his love for books.  In this book, the former premier of NSW Bob Carr, tells us what his favourite books are, and his reasons behind reading them. An inspiring book which makes us re#think why reading matters, and reveals what books #thinking citizens of the world should read.  It explores the issues of politics, dictatorships and the environment. Party politics also feature in this book. Find out more about the man behind the politician in My Reading Life: Adventures in the World of Books.

  1. If you’re looking for a good book to read-either for your own enjoyment or a book club suggestion-what’s one of the first things you do? You can ask a friend. But word-of-mouth recommendations depend to a large extent on personal taste. If you want a more reliable gauge, you’ll want to find book reviews.
