721 Well, Mandy, both SOS & RRRC, you're a member of both, have Member's Reading List threads - look towards the bottom of the threads list.

Really it's just a place where members can list their challenges and anything else like total numbers of books, what books they plan on reading next etc.

721 Maggie, it sounds like you're after a Member's Reading List thread. Lots of groups have one of those, perhaps we should as well.

*Hint, hint, Mods*
721 I'm already doing a Georgette Heyer challenge, so I'll pick out one of her books written before 1945.

Mandy did you tell them to get glasses? LOL

Or maybe it's you who need the glasses? Choco milk. ROFL

721 Hooray, Rena!
721 Both my parents were readers, Mum was fiction, Dad was non-fiction. I don't remember them reading to me but they must of, and I very definitely remember going to libraries (yes more than one) with them, having my own card as soon as I could & being allowed to pick whichever kids book I wanted.

I was reading pretty young & I still remember fondly the Pixie books, great illustrations. I think the pictures in kids books also started my love of art.

I've never stopped reading, outgrew both schools libraries and the local library and was well on the way to doing the same to the main district library when I got married & moved to new libraries, LOL.

Now I buy more books than I get from the library but if they've got something I want to read, I still get it from there.

I'm a challenge junkie since I joined GR, even though this is my first at Aussie Readers. Getting better at picking the books I really want to read. LOL.

Jacinta, thanks for the list, I too recognised quite a few names.

721 Brenda, that's one reason I've been reading out of order, getting the books from the library.

I've had to resort to reserving them to get the ones I haven't read yet. And I've joined the J.D.Robb group, thanks for the tip.

721 That's exactly what I'm doing too, Mandy. Got my copy of This Side of the Grave (Night Huntress, #5) by Jeaniene Frost the other day but I'd planned to re-read #2-#4 first.

Done #2 & #3, just gotta do #4 Destined for an Early Grave (Night Huntress, #4) by Jeaniene Frost then onto #5 This Side of the Grave and looking forward to #6 One Grave at a Time
Mar 04, 2011 06:10PM

721 No Brenda, I'll have to look into it.

I must admit I haven't been reading them in order, so I've probably read about 20 of them so far.

Thought I better go back and read some of the ones I've missed.

721 At the moment Book Depository UK is cheaper than the US store, for anyone interested.
721 It just looks dreadful, looks like there will be some loss of life. All my thoughts to our cousins across the ditch.

721 Looking forward to that drink with you tomorrow Adele!

721 Not pics but funny none the less, from an email -




The Australian Medical Association has weighed in on the new Prime Minister Gillard’s health care proposals.

The Allergists voted to scratch it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.

The Gastroenterologists had a sort of a gut feeling about it, but the neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.

The Obstetricians felt they were all labouring under a misconception.

Ophthalmologists considered the idea short-sighted.

Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the Paediatricians said, "Oh, Grow up!"

The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it.

The Surgeons were fed up with the cuts and decided to wash their hands of the whole thing. The Ear Nose and Throat specialists didn't swallow it, and just wouldn’t hear of it.

The Pharmacologists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, "This puts a whole new face on the matter...."

The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were p*ssed off at the whole idea.

The Anaesthetists thought the whole idea was a gas, but the Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.

In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the a*seholes in Canberra .
