Current Book News from around the World

Stephen King causes chaos in the Aussie Desert.

SYDNEY (AFP) - Best-selling author Stephen King was mistaken for a vandal as he horrified an Australian outback bookstore, local media reported Thursday.

A customer at the store in remote Alice Springs raised the alarm after noticing a man walk in off the street and begin writing in several books, manager Bev Ellis told national radio.

"As the owner of a bookshop, when you see someone writing in one of your books you get a bit toey (touchy)," Ellis said.


Fashion book by Victoria Beckham coming out in November

Posh Spice's new book to be published by Harper Collins

HarperCollins announced Thursday that the former Spice Girl and wife of soccer star David Beckham will have a book out in November, "That Extra Half an Inch: Hair, Heels and Everything in Between."


According to HarperCollins, "That Extra Half an Inch" will offer guidance on everything from how to dress on special occasions to "how to feel confident and look great every time you leave the house."


Since I belong to the Harper Collins Canada First Look program, It's probably time I gave a plug for HC. I've had some excellent and interesting books from them this year. Including the one I am currently reading - so hopefully there will be a new review up tomorrow or Monday.
