Here is some Suggested Reading for your Trip to Australia

Here are some great books that I think you should check out before you come to Australia or while you are in Australia. Some of the books are Australian specific and some are simply just some great travel reads.

I am a big fan of owning a kindle and before you scold me, yes; I understand a Kindle is never as good as a real book but when you are travelling it is the next best thing!

It does feel as close as you can get to a real book and you can literally have hundreds of books on your device and there is no way you can travel to or around Australia with hundreds of real books.

Finally, some people say to me “but I read on my tablet, phone, laptop etc”, and yes this is of course possible but with a kindle you aren’t going to get sore eyes from a bright screen and you aren’t going to get a notification every 5 minutes from an email from your Mum saying how much she is missing you, so with a Kindle you can fully immerse yourself into a great book and relax.

Hence my love of Kindle. Happy reading!
