So here's the stack I borrowed from the library today. Text Publishing sent me an email this week highlighting their latest releases. I chose the Gail Jones and Robbie Arnott books, not because they're latest releases but because they have both been longlisted for the Miles Franklin Literary Award.
All I've read of Gail Jones is Five Bells. Robbie Arnott is new to me.
I listened to the ABC's Bookshelf program yesterday on the way to Bel's place and so have been sucked in to reading more Patricia Highsmith. Yes, I have ordered the new biography. Eek! I'm such a goose. I now realize that Those who Walk Away is the only Patricia Highsmith I have read. I will have to order another. Strangers on a Train sounds good. I've also ordered The Blunderer because it is such a splendid title.
I have wanted to read A Lonely Girl is a Dangerous Thing for a while. Have you read it? Did you enjoy it?
And I borrowed a couple of magazines for idle browsing. I love the healthyfood magazine and I thought I would see what The Simple Things magazine is like. I get bored easily when making meals and need a bit of inspiration. Hence the Healthier Together cookbook as well. I find it challenging just cooking for two all the time.
Last but not least a knitting book because you can never look at too many knitting patterns. I don't think I know about KlompeLOMPE but maybe I follow them on Instagram. At any rate, it looks fun and lovely.
What did you borrow from the library this week? Any comfort books like me for long winter nights? Are you cooking and knitting more? Do you like reading Patricia Highsmith? Do you ever get to read the books you borrow? How do you commit to reading so you reach your goals? I'm 7 books behind on my goal of reading 50 books this year. How are you going?
