Supanova and a Guest Blogger

There are very few ‘stars’ I’d really like to meet. One of the very few is James Marsters and he was recently in Melbourne as a special guest of Supanova. I wasn’t able to get there and this is probably a good thing as I don’t think my OH would have willingly let me go […]

Words and phrases

There are some very interesting words and phrases in English which people use and they’re often used out of context. Here are a few examples and I’m sure you can come up with some more. If you’ve studied English Language you’ll know more than me as these are only the ones I’ve observed. Yeah no. […]

Miscellaneous Musings

This is absolutely nothing about books it was just an interesting interlude earlier this evening. I was driving along Tooronga Road, Hawthorn East and there was a traffic holdup.

Arnold Zable

It was at the Second Australian Jewish Genealogy Society (Vic) Conference. I’d signed up as a volunteer even though I’m not overly excited by the thought of researching my family’s genealogy. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very important thing to do I’m just not interested in doing the research myself. My OH is on […]

Dewey’s Read-a-Thon

I’ve just signed up to be a Cheerleader of of Dewey’s 24 hour Read-a-Thon. I know it’s going to be great fun but I do wish I’d known about it earlier. I wish everyone the best of luck with their reading tomorrow.


I’ve always wondered about the vast numbers of celebrity books that are around. How come they are all such good writers, surely they can’t all have the necessary skills to write a book as well as doing all the things they normally do.
