a couple of authors I enjoyed so much i ended up reading most of their books:Jeff Noon http://www.theguardian.com/culture/2013/apr/20/jeff-noon-life-in-writingChuck Palahniuk ~ the author of FightClub http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/c/chuck_palahniuk.htmlNeal Stephenson ~ TheDiamondAgeDavid Mitchell ~ same author as the Cloud Atlashttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt1371111/starring tom hanks or his far superior book https://www.google.com.au/search?q=Number9Dream
Presently my favourite genre are non-fiction stories of Tech startups like: Masters of doom, the story of amazon, fb, wikipedia, a good one of those i will read at the moment but not much else. Presently reading the Clive palmer bio. Did you know he was a Southport boy (born Melbourne) who went to UQ and feld to Adelaide after exposing some corruption and receiving a death threat back in his student days?Thanks to whoever gave the Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance that sort of wokeup my reading habit :-)
Good work Debbie. Nicely done!! In that sense, Guy was right, you do have big shoes -next time I'd like to see you in more comfortable ones, adorable as they are, not to be the fashion police, sorry ~ it's what I want for everyone. Good work too for not having any super glue on your pants.

Debbie said there was no prescribed reading for January on 12 January
I have read a number of Crime Fiction from the Gods of Guilt by Michael Connelly to the recent Ian Rankin, A PD James set in a psychiatric ward that was written in 1963 and a Donna Leon about a detective Guido Brunetti and Cockroaches by Jo Nesbo (Norwegian) set in Bali. I have also read Gallery of the Vanished Husbands, Revenge of the Spellmans and I am reading Peter Carey called Parrot and Oliveria in America which is a delightful book. Looking forward to catching up with everyone on 29th

Reading Wild Swans again. Very interesting read about 3 generations of woman living in China.
