At Central West Libraries we love books and reading and know you do too.
The Good Reading Hub for Book Lovers is an Australian resource with information on “Everything About Books” including thousands of easy to read independent book reviews and lots of interesting Australian and international articles, author profiles, stories on writers’ houses, bookshops, short stories, book trivia and more.
