1. I am a pussy so thrillers. 2. Handmaid‘s Tale is scary enough for me. All that stuff has already happened somewhere in the world. 3. Done. 4. True Blood. 5. I faint easily so no gore. My anaphylaxis training each year is a big day for me. 6. Do you guys know about Ivan Milat, Australia‘s worst serial Killer? Google him but not before bed. @teebe

teebe Yes! I recently listened to the My Favorite Murder episode where they covered it. Hadn‘t heard of him before that. 4d
veritysalter @LapReader @teebe Yes, also heard about him from MFM. Truly awful. 4d

Last week‘s op shop scores. The P&O cards are so pretty my partner asked me not to send them to you Litsy Folk but save them to write to him. He even offered to buy them off me! He wishes I could turn my op shopping into a business. The burb cloth is for an old friend‘s new baby girl Juniper Mabel and the little bird is for my Xmas tree. So going to work in an op shop when I retire so I get first dibs on the books.

1.Scrabble. 2. Mexico for as long as I can remember. 3. I don‘t do book goals. I just squash as much reading as I possibly can into my life eg. Today while I walked to the shops to get groceries, I listened to The Handmaid‘s Tale read by Elizabeth Moss. It‘s a reread & I am loving it. 4. Ben Elton. Haven‘t read anymore since. 5. Are you in the bath scrolling and drinking red wine on this Friday night like me? Off to watch Planet of the Apes soon.

Loved this coffee table book I borrowed from the library and the amount of beautiful houses with heaps of books inside. I hoard books so it has given me much more confidence to pile my books up everywhere and that there are other people that do this too and it‘s actually stylish. My family think I need an intervention, I think they are the ones who have the problem, they don‘t own enough books.

Yesterday‘s Lifeline Cardiff purchases for the grand total of $13. Most of these are gifts for the kids but the rest are treats for me. I‘m all alone this weekend & I‘m loving it. My step children & partner are away. I‘m having big sleeps & tea & treats in bed. I went to ballet class yesterday, shopped for hrs, drank some nice wine & did some decluttering. Today I‘m off to watch Hustlers, the movie in a Gold Class Cinema=cocktails & yummy food.

She was a hoarder in a beautiful way and a very generous woman, who lead an interesting life. It‘s one hour till I should be in bed if I am to get the sleep I need so let‘s see how I go. Feel free to tag anyone you think might like to join. I will start @thegreensofa

This gorgeous thing is my eldest nephew. Previously a reluctant reader I‘ve tried everything to get him to read then I found some of these books at Vinnies and now he is hooked. Here he is reading at the breakfast table before school. I will have to hunt for more.

Samplergal He is a cutie. And so wonderful you found the book to grab him. ❤️❤️❤️ 2mo
LapReader Thanks @Samplergal he has a beautiful nature as well. Very affectionate and helpful. 2mo

Got these for a steal at the Red Cross in Dubbo last Monday. Lots are gifts. Some I think I may already have, such is the state of my library.

Lel2403 Oh I read The Women‘s room years ago.... 2mo
LapReader What did you think of it @Lel2403 ? 2mo
Lel2403 @LapReader as I remember, I enjoyed it....I went through a faze of this genre, Fay Weldon too.. 2mo

Yesterday I scored these at a coffee shop called 2828 in Gulargambone for $1 each. I also got my Dad a talking book for $2. My Nan, mother and I had a simple lunch together before we returned to my sister‘s isolated farm to help her care for my newborn niece.

Soubhiville Sounds like a wonderful day. I love this photo! 💜 2mo

Come-read-with-me @LapReader Hi! My book marks are one of the packages that you are still waiting for. As a way of apologising that they are so late, I sent an Amazon package. I received notice yesterday stating they tried delivering but couldn‘t leave the package, so it is at your local collection office (didn‘t tell me where!) I‘ll keep trying to track down more info and keep you updated. Again I‘m so sorry that this process is slow 😩 2mo

Hanging out at my sister‘s shop today. It‘s a co op she runs with her friends. I went to yoga this morning in this light filled, lovely smelling room. The class was run by my cousin. I had coffee with a new friend I met at yoga who remembered me from an article I wrote in my 20s! I am just back from the Vinnie‘s op shop nearby where they had books for $1 and DVDs for $2 but the lady only charged me $16 for all of these goodies. Some are gifts.

Better late than never hey @sudi 1. The Discovery of Witches. I don‘t own it. 2. The Colour Purple. A high school text I loved. 3. Too many to count and for my bookshelves to hold. 5. Probably a self help book? 5. @LeeRHarry @Eggs #wondrouswednesday

sudi Did you watch the tv adaptation of a discovery of witches? I've been meaning to watch it but haven't got to it yet. 3mo
LeeRHarry @sudi I watched it and it was good - I had DNFed the book beforehand but I picked it up afterwards and enjoyed it. 3mo
sudi @LeeRHarry one of my friends called it adult twilight, so i definitely had to watch it 😂 3mo
Come-read-with-me @LapReader I‘ve heard the book is good, so I‘m sending you a copy along with a couple of bookmarks as a way of apologising for the bookmark swap. The ones I originally sent should have been there on time, but I‘m guessing they got lost in the mail. I am so sorry. 3mo

Wrapping my cute niece‘s 6th b‘day presents & decided to include this book. Does anyone else have a present cupboard where they buy things throughout the year for gifts when they see something someone would like instead of rushing to get presents last minute? I picked this one because my niece, Lila loves to dance & the main character has the same name as her favourite cousin, who is my step daughter, Tilly. I ❤️ that Lila loves to read like I do.

TheAromaofBooks Yes, I have a box in the closet that serves the same purpose - although sometimes I'm quite bad at actually putting the stuff in the box for later instead of gifting it right away! :-D 3mo
LibrarianRyan Yep I do that too. 3mo

I‘m away for my partner‘s 47th b‘day at The Anchorage. Service is excellent. Margaritas in the spa? No prob. Candle on the balcony? No worries. Breakfast comes with bottomless champagne as does arvo high tea. I‘m enjoying this book despite the fact that the main character is acting like an adolescent brat. It‘s taking me ages to absorb a pg as despite this he is making me think & everyone can remember what it feels like to be a passionate teen.

thegreensofa Jealous!!!😍 Sounds so nice there! I'm so happy too that you are enjoying the book, I couldn't take to it and I was so scared it was too offensive for everyone!😳 3mo
Freespirit Wow looks fantastic. Looking forward to reading it. 3mo

Was super excited to read this for #poemsbeforephones. I got it from the Salvos at Toronto for the bargain price of 50 cents (I think a poetry lover may have died because there was a lot of old volumes of poetry in a crate by themselves) & right about now I‘m glad I only paid that much. I will persevere hoping I connect with it soon. At the moment it just feels like he is pulling my leg. There are some outstanding lines every now and again though.

monalyisha Whoops! Glad you‘re doing the poetry thing, though! 3mo

It‘s Book Week in Oz. As much as I ❤️ reading, I hate Book Week. I think the focus needs to be less on dressing up & more on reading. Matilda, almost 9 & not a reader, is dressed as Paddington ?. Linnéa is almost 11. She loves to read the same books over & over again & is dressed as 1 of the Musketeers. I tried to use things we already had & only buy things we could reuse e.g. Linnéa‘s shirt & belt are my size and Matilda‘s bag will be my spare.

Andrew65 Agree about the focus needing to be more on reading than dressing up. (edited) 3mo
Freespirit Oh I remember dressing up my boys... such a lot of work! The kids look great💕 3mo

Stew started to read this to the kids today in prep for our trip to Samoa in Oct. He reads classics to them most nights at bed time. Other recent ones include The Hobbit & Wind in the Willows. I sat in the other end of the hammock drinking a glass of white. Sunday bliss. Linnéa is on the left. She had her first crochet lesson yesterday & is a tad obsessed. Matilda ,on the right, was over it after an hr. So glad the days are starting to warm up.

Those Other Women | Nicola Moriarty

Pickpick

I went to a chat on the 31st July at my local library about writing crime. It was held in the art gallery upstairs. At the moment they have an exhibition on female convicts. Many bonnets, that are beautifully decorated and feature the names of the women, line the walls. It reminded me of The Handmaid‘s Tale. I met Liane Moriarty‘s sister. She signed all 3 of my books by her. The interviewer promised not to mention her sister but then Nicola did.

Gillyreads Jaclyn Moriarty is one of my favourite authors. I‘ve heard all three talk about each other‘s work and it‘s great. They‘re so supportive but joke about stealing each other‘s ideas and such. 3mo

Not as awesome as my perfect score in Week 1 last round. The heart is for exercise. The bottle is for drinking an extra 2 big glasses of water a day. This has made my skin clearer straight away. The wine glass is for sticking to my standard drink rules. The book is for reading. The dirt tin is for decluttering and last of all the present is for treats. I thought I would give this bullet journalling you Americans do a go. I picked this 1 up for $10
