AustCrime - April Wrap Up

April, apart from finishing off one book, was 100% Australian author month. Half way through the month it dawned on me that in 2006, when I got the first version of this site up and running, it was a bit tricky to fill an entire month's reading with local books - even with a bit of back catalogue re-reading.
