.....sitting in front of the air con with a pile of good books I am thinking. We are heading for 38 degrees apparently.....38!!!! Summer has finally hit it seems....
Talking of books, here's what I've read so far this year.....(no wonder there's not been much scrapping happening.....)
The 1st of the Sookie Stackhouse series....I'd heard others rave about these vampire books, but honestly.....not that impressed. Doubt I'll read any more.
Tim borrowed this Nevill Shute classic from the library and passed it to me....apparently one of his most widely read and controversial novels. An end-of-the-world story set five years into the future....1964. I found it sad, disturbing and thought-provoking to see the way people coped and chose to spend their last days. The author himself was upset with the movie that was made from his book.....so if you saw it and were disappointed.....go ahead and read the book.
Another library book about a completely ditzy (and selfish in my opinion) 20-something who can't decide between her brand new husband or her long-lost "soulmate"......a crazy lighthearted comedy of errors and a nice quick read.
A workmate lent me this one.......and I loved it!!! It's the latest in the Shopaholic series. Lots of LOL moments (I totally identify with her wicked shopping ways and how she justifies all her purchases to herself!) and I read it in a couple of days.
I am so in love with air-head Rebecca Bloomwood now, and her kooky family and friends.....I went to the library so I can start from the beginning....
I have 4 pages to go of the first book (also released as The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic)......I know.....I just couldn't keep my eyes open any longer at 2am last night when I was trying to finish it!
....and I have the next one waiting for me on my bedside table.
Yep, off I go to read away my afternoon......and I don't even have to feel guilty.....being a public holiday and all....
HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY!
Leaving you with a pic of our first born lamb - very appropriate for Australia Day don't you think!
