Super Busy September

I've been really busy lately - I'm even writing this post on (gasp!) the second of October. I'm pretty behind in my reviews and even suffering from a bit of reading fatigue, partially because I'm doing a lot of study related reading for work. Six books managed to make their way onto this blog. One... Continue Reading →

All over August

Even though I managed to read eight books in August, I think I spent nearly as much time reading as I did buying books. (More to come in September) I am still behind in reviews; sitting at a desk job (only temporary) in front of a computer all day keeps me away from the computer at night! I... Continue Reading →

Jumping out of June and into July

I'm almost certainly going to run out of alliteration for months soon! J is a difficult letter for month summaries. I'm a bit behind in my reviews, so I only managed to post six reviews. Half of these were ebooks and half were non-fiction, surprisingly! I was also introduced to the works of Andrey Kurkov through... Continue Reading →

May’s Musings

I have been working away behind the scenes quietly over the previous weekend, so you can expect a bit more action in June. I did manage to read and review seven books though. As usual, how I'm...

Achievements in April

There were a few public holidays (Easter, Anzac Day) which helped to bolster my book total for the month - eight books, not bad. I had a good mix of fiction and non-fiction too, with an ebook thrown... Continue Reading →

Making Headway in March

What did I get up to in March? Actually, I did a fair bit of reading during my holiday (more pics soon) but I was quite lazy when it came to completing reviews. I blame it on the weather - it's still over 30C everyday, the hottest March ever! First, the challenges: 2011 Aussie Author Challenge... Continue Reading →

February in a Nutshell

Well, I didn't get as many books read this month as I did in January. It's a shorter month with no public holidays plus I read some books that demanded more attention. My result was four books, all of which I enjoyed. The winner would have to be Fortune Cookie by Bryce Courtenay - simply... Continue Reading →

January’s reading

Looking back at January, I managed to read a lot of books for me -ten in total. Some of these were relatively short reads (the kind I get for Christmas and like to laze around reading) - The Big Book of Top Gear 2011 (I love Top Gear), Mad Men: The Illustrated World by Dyna Moe (love Mad Men too) and...
