I'm still occasionally surprised to see that my 2006 boutique list of Australian literature blogs gets visits, and links out. So I've updated it and added the terrific blog of Australian writer Jane Gleeson-White, bookish girl.
In the last two weeks Jane has been that most valuable of bloggers, a chronicler of events.
She brought us words and pictures from the launch of Jennifer Mills' short story collection in Glebe.
She has been our eyes and ears at the conference for the Association for the Study of Australian Literature in three instalments: one, in which Ozlit is alive and kicking in our universities; two, where the Dorothy Green lecture speaks of islands; and three, a summary of no less than seven other sessions, including the launch of a new book on Shirley Hazzard.
I've also had a delightful email from a French blogger called Angélique, whose blog Le Koala Lit has been added to my painfully brief list. She contributes to a French website called Le petitjournal de Melbourne, and was recently featured in Meanjin.
In the meantime, all you other book bloggers out there, be mindful that there are searches for Australian literature blogs going on, so whack that text into your blog somewhere. Better still, make a longer list than mine and use it for a heading. Go, you good things.
