I bought five books at St Joseph’s Fete last Friday night. Charley ate one of them yesterday morning. Not all of it of course, but she gave the hardback cover a good gnaw. Luckily it was a book I bought for India and she already owned it.
Note to self, keep books off the floor now we have a puppy.
This week I’ve been meandering through one of my five purchases, Family Baggage by Monica McInerney.
And continuing with the Australian author theme, I also bought Sophie Lee’s book ‘Alice In La La Land’ at the fete. It is described on the cover as ‘a fast paced romp with a clear moral and a happy ending’. Perfect for me. Sometimes – very often – I like to know where I am going with a story. Have you read it. Should I start it next?
Or should I delve into ‘Burial Rites’ by Hannah Kent? It has just dropped into my audiobooks on BorrowBox (via Darebin Library). I know it’s going to be harrowing … And now I’ve borrowed it I am not sure whether I will love it as an audiobook … Maybe I should actually READ it. Or maybe I am just not up to a sad story in any form …
