Buy The Lost Girls by Wendy James and Get a Free Copy of The Mistake

Everybody loves a deal, so for a limited time when you buy a copy of Wendy James’ The Lost Girls you’ll get a free copy of her book The Mistake!

The Lost Girls (and The Mistake)

by Wendy James

From bestselling author Wendy James comes a hauntingly powerful story about families and secrets and the dark shadows cast by the past.

Curl Curl, Sydney, January 1978.

Angie’s a looker. Or she’s going to be. She’s only fourteen, but already, heads turn wherever she goes. Male heads, mainly . . .

Jane worships her older cousin Angie. She spends her summer vying for Angie’s attention. Then Angie is murdered. Jane and her family are shattered. They withdraw into themselves, casting a veil of silence over Angie’s death.

Thirty years later, a journalist arrives with questions about the tragic event. Jane is relieved to finally talk about her adored cousin. And so is her family. But whose version of Angie’s story – whose version of Angie herself – is the real one? And can past wrongs ever be made right?

The shocking truth of Angie’s last days will force Jane to question everything she once believed. Because nothing – not the past or even the present – is as she once imagined.

About the Author

Wendy James is the author of five books, including Out of the Silence, which won the Ned Kelly Award for Best First Crime fiction and was shortlisted for the Nita May Dobbie Award for women’s writing. She currently lives in Newcastle with her husband and two of their four children.

Booktopia’s Biggest Sale Ever Finishes At Midnight Tonight

When I was younger, so much younger than today, I used to get books from my mother every Christmas, every birthday, for every good report card, for every selfless deed I performed. It was magical.

Sometimes I had only just turned into the kitchen and told her the good news when she would dash up the hallway and out would arrive a new Graeme Base, or a new Goosebumps book. I was astounded, and always wondered how she did it, what elves she had working for her, a veritable publishing house in her bedroom just for me.

Then one day as I was approaching teenhood I was late for a birthday party. Mum hurried me along and threw a coat on me and asked me where the present I was giving was. I replied she hadn’t given me a present to give (Not unlike the reply my father gives her at Christmas for us kids now).

So she scurried into her bedroom and grabbed the ladder and scaled to the top cupboard. There I saw it, shining like a golden star, and I would never be the same.

Hundreds of books filled the space, books on everything. There were cooking books, sporting books, music books. Books on space, on country living and city surviving. Not to mention fiction for the whole family, Spot books for nieces to Barbara Cartland for the great aunts.

She was a smart one. When she saw a deal she pillaged and conquered. And she was never caught off guard whatever the case may be.

Her stockpile still remains to this day, and come Christmas she is a very calm woman, smugly striding to that top cupboard year after year while others sit in queues on Christmas Eve.

So don’t forget everyone; it’s the last day of the Booktopia Clearance sale today.

Over 5000 titles at up to 95% off.

Classics from Hemingway, Dickens and McCarthy. Best-sellers from Clancy, Binchy, Shriver and Cussler

That’s Not an Atlas, THIS is an Atlas : Earth Platinum – The World’s Largest Atlas

“Earth Platinum, the world’s largest atlas will start delivering from 20th February 2012. Earth Platinum is a comprehensive world atlas, featuring a world map for each of the thematic topics, Europe map, Canada map, USA map, Australia map, India map and more. The creator, Gordon Cheers, believes Earth Platinum will present the best national geographic map for every country in the world contained in a world atlas. The physical map of the world and political map of world are the largest ever published in a book. In these changing times, comprehensive maps are even more important than ever.

Opening to an incredible 6 ft x 9 ft (1.8 m x 2.75 m), Earth Platinum—a limited edition—has 128 pages and weighs 120 kg and is bound by hand. The foreword is authored by Head of Maps for the British Library; and the pages within present state-of-the-art cartography, geography, and oceanography, overseen by the world’s finest in their discipline. If Earth Platinum becomes the last big atlas, it will represent the best available of the world’s latest technology, cartography, and photography. It also offers a window into the world in which we live today, both politically and geographically.

In May 1660 the last grand atlas was produced: the Klencke Atlas. Only a single copy was produced by John Klencke, as a gift for Charles II of England. This masterpiece is preserved today in the Map Room at the British Library. Millennium House proudly continues that tradition with Earth Platinum.

This is a great video on how one of the photos in Earth Platinum was selected to be included in the book. To view the video click here.
