Happy New Year!

I hope you all have a great one!

Marg, Tanabata and I are all thrilled with the great response to the South Pacific Book Chat (#spbkchat) on twitter, and  2011 is shaping up to be a good one. :-)

Our schedule for chats is here: - through to the start of February, and it'll be updated shortly.

As always, we're open to topic suggestions - just tweet one of us with ideas:

Or drop us a note in the comments.

Thank you all for embracing #spbkchat the way that you have, and long may it continue into the new year!

Last week's #spbkchat was a lot of fun, as we chatted about giving books as gifts, and it was awesome to see new faces in the #spbkchat stream along with the regular tweeters. The discussion ranged far and wide, from what books people like to give as gifts, to what books were the most memorable we received as gifts.

On to this week's smoking gun ...

 Everyone loves a good mystery. A whodunit to get the little gray cells going; a chase across dark moors, or perhaps a tense legal thriller is what gets your pulse racing.

Whatever your poison (see what I did there?) crime - overall - is a great one for getting your teeth into.

This Thursday's #spbkchat on twitter is all about crime, and its many and varied forms, from classic crime literature, right up to modern day forensic hijinks.

Join us -  #spbkchat, every Thursday night on Twitter, 6pm Japan/8pm Eastern Aust/10pm NZ time.

Also, If you have any questions/ideas for us, you can contact me, Marg or Tanabata on our twitters:

Our schedule through to early February is here: South Pacific Book Chat Topics

Check your alibi, hide that smoking gun, get your little gray cells working, for the game is afoot!
