Australia isn’t just the Sydney Opera House and Uluru and golden beaches. Which is why I want to read a book set in each state of Australia.  (I’m not adventurous enough to try to read a book for each of Australia’s far-flung islands. Yet, anyway.). I have some ideas already. I don’t mind what genre, but I do want a sense of setting, which is why I ended up not counting The Rosie Project towards this list.
