8565 interestingly, according to worldcat, that isbn has 211 pages but by the publisher's website: 240.

That's fine, LynnB, I'd incline to go with the publisher's... I'll come back with your second card in a mo.

8565 I'll have to update your card a little later, Lynn... sorry, just spent a day & night at the hospital with my little one (just a severe cold which affected his breathing) but he's recovering well. Just exhausted!

btw, you didn't mention if you'd like a second card?

8565 BINGO!

My choice of theme, as I've been reading on Australian early history:

book set within the time period from ancient/BC up to 1860
Jun 22, 2016 06:49PM

8565 Karen, just to clarify your theme, do you mean any book that can somehow relate to summer (ie. summery cover, 'summer' in title/subtitle, etc) or do you mean for the shelf, summer?

Congratulations, Karen, you certainly have got a BINGO :D

I've updated your thread with a second card for you.

Also, if you like, you can nominate a theme for Free Space.

This one doesn't work since you've linked to the kindle edition. As you've read an ebook, the page count will be taken from the most popular physical edition: The Wicked Boy: The Mystery of a Victorian Child Murderer which is 352 pages

However... you've still got yourself a BINGO! :)

8565 Yep, thats right, Bea.

8565 The Wasp Factory -3 stars

I listened to audiobook though not quite in the frame of mind for it plus the Irish accent totally confused me! However, very interesting (in a crazy way) and really enjoyed the twist at the end.

8565 Nausea - Not the book for me! I understand some of his views and had probably at some points in time question my own existence etc etc etc but seriously, instead of getting too carried away into depression, get a grip, love, and move on! On another note, some of the reflection language is precious and I do wonder whether I’d appreciate this book more in perhaps 20 years from now when I will be somewhat close in situation with the main character... at the moment, I’m too caught up with my youth and my children to stop for long and consider the purpose of my existence. However, due to my faith, I don’t think I’ll ever be in this position as I do believe there is purpose to my existence.
