ALIA (Australian Library and Information Association) have challenged Librarians from all over Australia to read outside their comfort zone for 2010. Twelve books over twelve months that you wouldn’t normally pick up or even look twice at.
Can you recommend something good to read?
So I thought I would join in, but with a tricky twist. As I’m studying this year and won’t have time for any personal reading at all, I thought I’d listen to them instead on my way to work. I love talking books and would recommend them to everyone, especially on long distance car rides. The 1hour in the car each day will just have to do for this challenge.
