    I really found this list very useful. I decided to do my own survey of several places which I had never heard of – Book Bub, Jellybooks and Riffle. All of these sites are really useful places to find books to read… some were easier than others to use from Australia – The discount on Amazon which I chose from Book Bub did not seem to exist for an Australian customer …or perhaps it was not clear to me how to obtain it, and whilst they had a long list they had very little ‘literary fiction’, (which was my ‘test category’), whereas Jellybooks had a huge literary list. Riffle looked gorgeous but it requires you to access it via Facebook and Twitter and I don’t use either much. Nevertheless all had some interesting book choices and I did finally buy a book by Italo Calvino from Amazon suggested by Book Bub but not at the reduced price they were advertising it as, which I would not have bought if I had not seen it first on their site…;-)

      Success, even for someone from “down under” :-)

      So glad you found the list useful, Jane, and very glad your “test category” was literary fiction :-)
