Today’s Theme: Surfing Novels


Some rights reserved by Flickr user glennharper (CC BY-NC-SA 2.0)

A semi-regular addition to our WASLA Reviews content will be the compilation of various themes for books. This has been inspired by the regular requests on the various list servs for suggestions of what to suggest for avid readers who love a particular type of book, or style of book. Most of the lists you’ll find here come courtesy of the wonderful spirit of sharing and support demonstrated by library staff across Australia who respond to such pleas. These posts will be titled “Today’s Theme” and will be tagged that way as well, for easy searching.

Last week the request for surfing novels came through, so it seemed like a good place to start. Thank you to all who contributed suggestions.
