I wrote the monthly book review for The Triangle for about fifteen years. I have never studied literature, so none of the reviews contained any great insights or analysis. I could only write as a very keen reader.
The arrangement was a dream for me. I got to pick a new book every month, the overwhelming majority being bought from Candelo Books in Bega, my favourite bookshop outside Melbourne.
I would then pass the book to The Triangle committee, after which it would be donated to the Bermagui Library.
So, everybody won! I read one new book a month, Candelo Books had regular sales and the library benefitted from nearly $6000 worth of new books.
So – many thanks to The Triangle team for the opportunity to be their ‘literary editor’. What a dream job!
