Library Lust

It’s a familar story – drop into the library to pick up one book that has come in and go home with a bagful. I actually think I did quite well this time – only 10 books instead of the 15 I’m allowed. LOL. I’ve already started Diamond Dove because I took the kids to the park for twenty minutes afterwards – I really like it so far – I can’t believe I haven’t come across Hyland earlier.

Anyway  I picked up: {Linked to Goodreads}

A few on my list for the Aussie Author Challenge :

And these books also by Australian authors also caught my eye:

I also grabbed:

and yes, I admit it I have 6 books on reserve LOL

One of them I will use for my January Borrowed Book Challenge – have you signed up yet?

    Great haul for the Aussie Authors challenge. Adrian Hyland is becoming one of my favourite writers, I read Gunshot Road about six months ago but still haven’t stopped banging on about it and pestering people to read it. Both his books made my top ten lists for the years I read them.

    I’m in awe of you speed-readers. Yikes!

    I just can’t make myself read fast.
    I used to speed-read when I was in school… but when I’m reading for pleasure I’m like a wine connoisseur. I take the words in and swirl them around in my mouth savoring the flavor. No wonder it takes me ages to finish a good book.

    By the way, I notice you are reading Gunshot Road now. Have you already read Diamond Dove, because that book should be read first. You probably have, but I thought I would mention it just in case.

      Thanks Marg.
      I read Diamond Dove last night and I’m just about to start Gunshot Road. Had meetings to attend all today so didn’t get a chance to write my review of DD yet 🙂
