From Quarantine to Q Station: Honouring the Past, Securing the Future | Dannielle Viera, Jennifer Cornwell, Simon McArthur, Arbon Publishing Staff, Peter Hobbins, Annie Clarke, Ursula Frederick

#DeweyOct #readathon #ReadathonHourlyPhoto #hour4 #Spooky The spookiest place I‘ve ever been is definitely the Quarantine Station on North Head in Sydney Harbour. My two eldest & I went on a Lamplight Ghost Tour about 10yrs ago & I not only felt, heard & saw a ghost, I took its picture. So many people have died there over it‘s 160yr history, the atmosphere is so heavy especially in the hospital ward & the shower block.

ljuliel Do you have the picture of the ghost ? I believe in them myself. 4mo
Lizpixie @ljuliel no unfortunately! It was taken on an old phone over 10yrs ago and I lost all my photos trying to move them from phone to phone. In it it was all black except for a white outline of a person, there was definitely no one behind me at the time, I was the last of the group to enter the verandah. Freaked me out! 4mo
ljuliel That is so cool ! It looks like a neat place to visit. 4mo
Lizpixie It‘s actually a hotel now, though I don‘t think you could pay me enough to sleep there! Maybe sit there all night waiting for something to grab me, but there‘d definitely be no sleeping👻 4mo

Spring Has Sprung! | Mitchell Kriegman, Kiki Thorpe

#DeweyOct #readathon #ReadathonHourlyPhoto #hour3 #AutumnOrSpring It‘s spring here in Sydney,though it already feels like summer. Yesterday was 38C(100F)& the spring storm season is in swing. The only thing I love about now is flowers everywhere, this is part of my wisteria vine, I love it not just coz it‘s gorgeous, but also coz it was started with a cutting from my next door neighbour of 20yrs who‘s no longer with us. It always makes me smile💜

squirrelbrain That is beautiful! 💜 4mo
Tamra Lucky you!! 🌸🌼🌝 4mo
Lizpixie @squirrelbrain thank you! It covers the whole fence as well as my carport & it‘s creeping over next doors carport as well. Sheila, my neighbour, was a character & she‘d be so amused that it‘s taking over & annoying both mine & her hubby!😋 4mo
Sace Absolutely stunning 💜💜💜 4mo
CarolynM Beautiful! We used to have wisteria all over our front pergola when we lived in Canberra. Haven't had success with it here. I miss it. 4mo

#DeweyOct #readathon #ReadathonHourlyPhoto #hour2 #ReadingSpot This is my magnificent La-Z-Boy chair/bed/throne. I always told my boys that when they moved out I‘d turn their bedroom into my library so they couldn‘t come back. So when my youngest son left a few years ago, I whacked up those shelves the minute his heels cleared the front door! All jokes aside, I‘ve always wanted a home library & the hubby outdid himself in making me one.❤️

BGam Oh my .. 4mo
BGam This corner looks so cozy and pretty 💐🤩 4mo
ljuliel So pretty ! I like all the bright colors. I bet it‘s cheery in there even on those cold grey ugly days outside. 4mo

Just setting up for the #readathon #deweyoct today #deweyreadathon #readathonhourlyphoto and can‘t wait to dive into some graphic novels. I can‘t read the whole day since we have plans for the night to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary but hoping to get through this stack during the day maybe.

#DeweyOct #readathon #ReadathonHourlyPhoto #hour1 #OpeningBooks #My stack of opening books for this ‘thon, though I‘m starting off with the rest of the tagged audiobook. After that, it‘s a toss up between the pictured books. Probably either The Monster Of Elendhaven or Halloween Party by Dame Agatha. What‘s your opening books? #24B4Monday #TeamSlaughter 1point #PointsTotal-1,421

Andrew65 Loved No Time for Goodbye, my first Linwood Barclay many years ago and was hooked! One of my favourites. 4mo
Lizpixie @Andrew65 I just read Elevator Pitch, which was my first Barclay, and loved it. So of course I had to track down the rest of his books! 4mo
Andrew65 There is also a sequel to No Tine for Goodbye. Not read Elevator Pitch yet, but do recommend all his books. The Promise Falls Series was also very good. (edited) 4mo

ravenlee I just read Hallowe‘en Party a few days ago, my second Christie. It was a quick, interesting read, if a bit repetitive. 4mo

One of the places that I sometimes read: kitchen table. The light is great in here and I have padded chairs. And there‘s food and tea. #deweyaug #reversereadathon #readathonhourlyphoto @DeweysReadathon

GrilledCheeseSamurai Food & tea & reading sounds like a win to me! 👏 7mo

Opening line for the #reversereadathon:
‘Even before stepping into the cottage, Gary knows that this is bad.‘

Switching to a thriller from all the SciFi and Fantasy I‘ve been reading lately
