About Me

Tracey, author of Carpe Librum
I'm an Australian booklover with a passion for books and literature and I enjoy writing reviews and interviewing authors here at Carpe Librum.

My favourite genre to read is historical fiction but I also enjoy delving into the classics from time to time and of course supporting Aussie writers. Click here to see the challenges I'm participating in this year.

Bookmark Collection
I love to collect bookmarks and my collection is now over 260 at last count. I'd love to hear from fellow readers or collectors who also enjoy collecting or using bookmarks. I have a few duplicates I'd be willing to trade and also have a Pinterest board dedicated to Bookmarks if you'd like to check it out.

Published Reviews
In August 2011, I had a book review published in Good Reading Magazine and in September 2011, featured in the Caught Reading article in Good Reading Magazine.

In 2012 I had a second book review published in the April edition of Good Reading Magazine and author Anne Rice (of Interview With The Vampire fame) published a FB link to my review of her novel The Wolf Gift in March 2012.

In November 2012, I had an excerpt of a book review of mine featured on Mamamia Book Circle, hosted by CherylAkle.

In June 2013, I had two book reviews published in the special crime edition of Good Reading MagazineIn August 2013 I had the privilege of being interviewed by the Pittsburgh Examiner
.

Judge

In 2013 I judged a national Short Story Competition, reading and judging 91 entries in total and determining the place getters.

Boomerang Books
In May 2014 I partnered with Boomerang Books and joined their team of bloggers. You can check out my work for them here.

I have a box of bookmarks intending them to be a collection, but haven't actively done anything with them in terms of organisation and display. I will check out your Pinterest site. I'm not sure I have many duplicates though as I think I did a clean up a year or so ago and just retained one of each.

Great to hear about your collection, although they don't need to be on display in order for you to enjoy them. How many do you have?

If you have an Australian postal address, I could send you a few new ones? :-)
