Lovely to hear from you. As you can imagine, the trips uptown are never as frequent as I would like. We get up there occasionally, but I would like to be better at keeping in touch with everyone! A catch up with a few of the old work crew is definitely in order - I have seen a few, but there is always people I wish I could see more of. I hope all is going well for you and your family.

You may also wish to check out my author page here at Shelfari,
Hi kaisievic, how's it feel to be set free from the Department? Hope the regular faculty dinner turned into a great farewell!
Not sure whether you'll have more or less time to read. Will have to wait and see if you continue with adolescent titles - what the heck! A good read is a good read!
Keep in contact - I will be hanging out to hear of your new working life.
Heaps and heaps of best wishes, rsa
I really liked 'Seeing stone' - the depiction of medieval life, the varying chapter lengths, the common points in the lives of 'that Arthur' and 'the other Arthur', the mystery of Merlin's presence and the wholly believable 'growing boy' personality. Will you continue on with the others in the sequence? The most recent is a backwards look at Gatty's life.
Hi Sorry to hear about your fall. Anything that cuts into reading time is a trial indeed.
I found the picture for Lit Lov of B (perhaps LLOB?) last year sometime - seemed to add gravitas to our group's lofty intentions - maybe I unintentionally weighed them down too much - the group has been a little inactive to put it mildly.
Whoops - my internet finger slipped before I had finished. I am finally reading the copy of Blackwater that I bought when you and I went to the David Metzenthen author session at Penguin. I am really enjoying it - he gives such a strong sense of place that I can recognise the landscape at Queenscliff and he has recreated the idiom of WWI so well that I can hear the phrases that my grandparents used. Also a good portrayal of the ordinary hero coping with such sorrow.
I am indeed a member of LibraryThing. I am using it as an online back-up catalogue for my reading, following the 'great database corruption incident' of 2006. It seems a rather more serious site than Shelfari and gives a lot more sources for downloading titles including the Australian National Library. There are a large number of interest groups and you can add very librarian-y details to the bibliographic data (purely optional, of course).
I have exported my Library Thing list into Shelfari (Shelfari could not find over 300 of my titles on that first occasion) but it gives instructions for importing databases in "TEXT, CSV, XML, HTML, RTF, tab-delimited, etc. 2MB max."
The first 200 titles are free, but after that there is a cost involved. Since the Aus and US dollars are at close to parity, the fees of $10 or $25 seem minimal. Have a look at it - my log-in is also rsa in LT.
LOL yeah its a funny book
it may be kind of kidish but i really liked it cause it was funny
its about these three boys Fred Sam and Joe who go back in time when "The Book" teleports them back to the time of King Arthur and they battle the black knight and giants and dragons. And they also try to get back and stuff its a really good book!
I liked it :D
Its really good :)
Well, we know what we've really read and enjoyed - no need to pretend anything.
Clare is still very up and down. She seems a little happier in herself and has started going to yoga, but hasn't made much connection with school.
I bought a copy of Stoneheart for Rowville today and will start it on the weekend.
The avatar is "some1" and he claims 84030 books. The photo is of a man much younger than us - he would have to be consuming 2000 books per year - can't see how all that reading is humanly possible. Even the CBC judges can only cope with reading their allotted 300+ books for a couple of years at a time. The plot thickens...
The trip to Reader's Feast looks successful. I always like it there.
I visited Galaxy Bookshop in Sydney and realised how many additions to Fantasy series I had to catch up on.
I'm glad you rate Catcher in the rye well. Beth has just read it and we enjoyed pondering together the mystery that is Holden Caulfield.
Read you soon, Robyn
