Book Review - Dash of Peril by Lori Foster

Great story, and interesting characters! Although this book is in a series, it can be read as a stand alone. Contains fast action scenes & steamy sex, I definately would recommend reading it.

Book Review - The Magic Pattern Book by Amy Barickman


Finally a clothes sewing book that is easy to learn from, has great tips & hints, as well as being very clear about the whole process. Cant wait until I get a physical copy of this book! so I can study the patterns. A fantastic book!

Author Event - Janeen Brian

National Bookshop Day 2014

Here is the author line up for National Bookshop Day this year

Meet the Staff: Tamara



My name is Tamara. I have been working at the Bookstore for 5 years now and love it here! My favourite genre is Paranormal but I also enjoy Biographies, Manga, Y/A & fantasy.
I look after the customer orders, making sure to check on special orders that have taken a while to arrive and to send friendly reminders to customers that their orders are in store. I also write small reviews to put on shelf talkers around the store when I have a spare moment.
Some of my favourite authors are: Keri Arthur, Gena Showalter, Darynda Jones, Jana Oliver, Nicole Peeler, Vicky Myron and about a thousand more!
During my spare time I’m almost always reading. There is nothing better to me than escaping in to the world my books create. I am also a very artsy person, so if I’m not reading you can generally find me creating little dragons out of clay or drawing.
Here is a personal Hello from me! I hope to see some friendly new faces in store so I can recommend you some of my favourite reads!

Staff Introduction: Sonia


My name is Sonia and I am the manager of Collins Booksellers Edwardstown. I have been a part of the book industry for 11 years but have only been manager of Collins Booksellers for 5.
I organise the books that come into the store. I meet with Reps to find out the best new releases and to find out what the hottest new books available are. 

My Favourite genre of reading is Crime although my reading range is wide, I do read a lot of books from every section. Some of my favourite author’s are: Janet Evanovich, Linda Howard, Lee Child, Maya Banks and many, many more.

During my spare time I love to read a good book or relax on the couch and watch movies. I happen to love little succulent plants so when I get some free time I do a bit of gardening and design new ways to plant them.

I would like to say Hello to everyone and I hope to see some new faces in store soon.
