The Petrona Award has been established to celebrate the work of Maxine Clarke, one of the first online crime fiction reviewers and bloggers, who died in December Maxine, whose online persona and blog was called Petrona, was passionate about translated crime fiction but in particular that from the Scandinavian countries.
The shortlist for the award, which is based on Maxine's reviews and ratings is as follows:. Charlotte Barslund Faber and Faber. Victoria Cribb Harvill Secker. Neil Smith Corgi. Paul Norlen Doubleday.

Search the Kindle Fire App store for Overdrive. This means that I can get epub ebooks via my local library and also read the epubs I bought from Kobo for my now languishing Sony eReader. Go to Kobo, go to a title in your library and click on epub and it will prompt you whether you want to use Overdrive.

I've not had any success with netgalley epub titles yet and I don't know if sideloading free epubs will work but this is an improvement. If only some sort of book organising function could be added as it'll surprise nobody that I have tens of books on my Kindle Fire and would love to put them into bookshelves by category I now have to update my spiel at work when people ask about ebooks!

Her parents are German but she was born in Istanbul and has spent time living in both countries and speaks Turkish with a slight accent. You, too, speak very good Turkish. I have to confess it wasn't original — I pinched it from a novel. Kati's landlord has put her rent up to such a degree that she decides that it's time to own her own property.

The different areas of Istanbul have their own reputations as does the country outside Istanbul. Also mentioned are the reasons for people coming to Istanbul, the story of family feuds, as well as customs for when you have visitors and so on. We also get a look at how Kati perceives Germans.
