Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 23/10/17

So I didn't get quite as many books read over the last week as I always seemed to be rushing off somewhere. Even though my calendar looks pretty full already this week, I'm hoping to sneak in some reading time to rejuvenate. I received four books in the mail last week, which all look brilliant....

Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading 27/3/17

It's the end of March, which means footy (Australian Rules football) is back! It's always an exciting time with the good-natured rivalry between fans of different clubs and showing your team colours. There have already been some unexpected wins. So that's my weekends sorted until the end of September. This week I had an opportunity... Continue Reading →

Mailbox Monday 29/6/15

Last week seemed to go on forever! There was always something to do, something to see, someone to talk to.

Mailbox Monday 5/5/14

A bit of a quiet one this week in the mailbox. Perhaps it was too cold for everyone! I did receive one book in the mail though, a lovely surprise from Bloomsbury Sydney: My Salinger Year by Joanna Rakoff is a memoir of her first job, a literary agency in New York. It's a flashback...

Mailbox Monday 21/4/14

I hope you are all having a lovely Easter break. As always, the lead up to Easter is very busy and I didn't get a lot of reading done. I also worked half of Easter, so I'm hoping to settle down with a book and an Easter egg today! Do drop by the Mailbox Monday... Continue Reading →
