    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-writing
    Chuck Palahniuk ~ the author of FightClub
    http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/c/chuck_palahniuk.html
    Neal Stephenson ~ TheDiamondAge
    David Mitchell ~ same author as the Cloud Atlas
    http://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.

    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

    Hey old friends! Hello from wet n wild Darwin! I have just found a Meetup book club here called Wine and Wit book club - it's probably the closest thing I'll get to Booze and Books and right down my alley!
    I just finished reading The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul - what a lovely read!
