Randomly Shelves or Something

My brilliantly aptly named new series continues. Where I randomly select two books from my shelves and attempt to find a link. I do not promise it will be a good link, only that it will be a link. It might be anything at all. One thing I do promise is that the link will not be […]

Cary Grant: Haunted Idol – Geoffrey Wansell

Cary Grant is one of the most well-remembered movie stars from the 20th Century despite the fact he hasn’t appeared in a movie since 1966. If you haven’t seen Arsenic and Old Lace, His Girl Friday or Topper then your education is sadly lacking and I suggest you go and remedy that post haste and tout […]

Sales of 1984 skyrocket

I’ve casually mentioned 1984 in a brief article by George Orwell only a few months ago. What far too many of us couldn’t anticipate is that this book would now be rocketing up the charts and selling out. If you want a particular copy you might be waiting a while as Signet has sold out, but […]

Twilight – Stephenie Meyer

Twilight – Stephenie Meyer

Here we go, for some reason you lot have been hanging out for this rant from me. I have to get this out of my system before I do my quiz for uni. If you’re a fan you might want to leave right now…you have been warned. I now understand why 50 Shades of Grey is […]

Things are crook in Tallarook

This is a little article I wrote a few weeks ago about some issues I was having with getting some assignments done on time. I’m naming and shaming because it’s easier that way. Things are crook in Tallarook, the saying goes, but things are much crooker in my house. Wednesday 7th December we lost the […]

Enough Rope 3 – Andrew Denton

Here’s a classic for you. A really old book, all the way from 2005…the good old days. Andrew Denton is the Interview King, it’s a real pity he’s stopped. He was fair, he was compassionate and often the questions came out of left-field giving us much more intimate answers than anyone else could have gotten. I particularly […]

I like being right et al

Being Right I love being right, it’s a fabulous feeling and in this case it shows I do have some idea of what I’m talking about. Back in December 2015 I wrote about Susan May. I told Stephen King he’d better move over and relinquish his position on Amazon. May is now celebrating yet another […]
