Melbourne Writers' Festival 2015!!

Oh my goodness, I realise that I am a little late but you can still catch the very last tail end of the Writers' Festival for this year! (Until Aug 30...)

Even if you didn't manage to catch any events, it's still worth a look on the website to see what was on and interviews as well on the blog.

Kids These Days

I can confidently say that I was born last millennium. Just. But even so, there are a billion songs that I love. And just because, share them here now!

1. We must say vale to the lovely Cilla Black who passed away at the start of this month but not without forgetting her hit 'Anyone Who Had a Heart'. This one is a ripper that should be sung in a place where sound volume is really no issue. 

Check it out here

2. Okay, do not judge me, I blame it on Smooth FM (the best radio station, no I'm not paid to say that) but Sade's Smooth Operator, is seriously one of the smoothest tunes, that's probably why it's called Smooth Operator. Actually no.  She is absolutely gorgeous in this. 

Check it out here

3. And in a similar vein, The Jackal by Ronny Jordan. I will be honest and say that the West Wing *brought me here*. CJ is the best character. This track makes you feel like you need to down a martini quick! And I don't even drink.  

Check it out here!

 Sorry I had to.

And to tie this back to books...we have a stack of music biographies and fun facts filling our shelves! Don't forget that we can order something in for you as well!

Released on the 12 August, the 65 STOREY TREEHOUSE is the latest installment in his bestselling series! Sure to be full of laughs and just all round rollicking good time! And! The cover is green coincidentally the same colour as Andrew's Bookshop.

How exciting! 

And a side note, why has the new edition of the Day My Bum Went Psycho now been called the Day My BUTT Went Psycho? Sigh.

What An Excellent Time To Be Alive

Guess what?? Next Saturday (the 8th of August) is the day I know you have all been waiting for...


I know, I'm pretty excited too. We'll have live music in store from some of our talented staff members. That's right, they can play music AND read AND help you find a book. Unbelievable :) So if you like your books with a bit of melody on the side then make sure you come in next Saturday! There will be balloons as well if you weren't otherwise convinced. 

If you're lucky, we may have some children's book readings as well. Either way, it's sure to be an excellent day! 

Don't forget to tag us in any posts or pictures! #nationalbookshopday #andrewsbookshop
