A must see site for all lovers of books is http://www.insideadog.com.au/

Insideadog is a program of the Centre for Youth Literature at the State Library Victoria. It's aim is to promote reading to young adults.

They welcome your views, and give opportunities for your input, including reviews, opinion, discussion, competition entries, and feedback.

Insideadog promotes young adult literature, highlighting Australian writers and their work, and includes the best of the international scene. It also features a writer in residence. The current writer in residence is UK author Jenny Valentine.

My favourite link leads to interviews with authors, including Simmone Howell, James Moloney and Melina Marchetta (to name just a few) where they answer questions about their first job, CD's they just purchased, favourite tv show, and their favourite books.


Just a hint, check out their interview with Steven Herrick, author of By the River, and My Life, My Love, My Lasagne. His response to the question Big Brother or Australian Idol? is a hoot!http://www.insideadog.com.au/residence/interviews/steven_herrick.html


PS. If you are wondering how insideadog got it's name. It relates to a quote from Groucho Marx, "Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it is too dark to read."
