Interesting things, lists

When I was young I was in the process of making a book of lists. It had to be in alphabetical order and I left space when I couldn’t fill a particular letter. It was in an exercise book and I was very dedicated to it for quite some time. Imagine my pleasure and surprise when […]

Randomly Shelves or Something

On this day I really should be writing something about Carrie Fisher or Richard Adams, but my feelings are a bit raw at present. Instead I’m continuing on with my normal scheduled article and will revisit both of them at some later stage. It was not a good day to wake up. My brilliantly aptly […]

As the Twig is Bent – Terry Lane

As the Twig is Bent – Terry Lane

This is such an interesting book. Terry Lane examines the nature versus nurture theory by interviewing 16 Australians who were prominent in the 1970s. They are from many different walks of life and the story they tell is then woven into shape in the final chapter. I took each chapter as it came and didn’t look […]

Another ebooktailer out of business

I wouldn’t normally write today but by the time I get to it on Friday the website will be gone and if you have books there/are an author there/are a publisher there and you haven’t heard then you’ll be very annoyed. Actually, you’ll be annoyed anyway but I’m putting this here anyway. All Romance eBooks are going out […]

Reviewing Children’s books

I mentioned on Wednesday how I’ve learned the reason why I don’t review children’s books, I’m going to expand on that today and you’ll look at children’s picture books in a whole new light. Over Trimester 3, some people refer to it as the summer semester, I’ve been working on Literature for Children and Young Adults. The […]

Boxing Day Thoughts

It occurred to me that I was overworking myself. How do you know when you’ve overextended yourself and need to step back for a while? In my case it was because I did something stupid, I’m grateful the author called me out on it and I was able to apologise and take the article down. […]

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 […]

Haunted Zine Launch

You know those times when you neglect to take your own advice? That’s me, today. I tell everyone when they’re blogging to make a schedule and stick to it but today I completely forgot about it and so I’m running slightly late. It’s not the end of the world, but it is rather annoying. Last week I […]
