In troubling times sales of Romance novels skyrocket. Read an ABC News article here.
I was recently a guest on ABC Radio giving my suggestions for books for listeners to read during isolation. If you are looking for an escape or a distraction have a look through this list. I focused on Romantic fiction and Women's fiction but I did include a couple of options for Classics, Historical and Non-fiction (but nothing too down-hearted).
You can buy ebooks, shop for physical books online or check with your local book seller - they may be offering a postal service. I know my local library is also offering delivery as well as ebook borrowing. My books are available from Mills&Boon Australia Booktopia or look for links below or on my 'Books' page on this website.
Stay safe, everyone and happy reading,
