I haven't read any of Sophie Hannah's work Michael, and I've heard varying reports about them...I'd be interested in your opinion when you've finished this one:)

I purchased The Sound of Music Family Scrapbook for my daughter yesterday, for her birthday. She has been a fan since she was a little girl, having watched the movie on video that many times, it wore out, and I bought her the DVD to replace it! For anyone interested, it's on special at Big W for $30 at the moment.

The Sound of Music Family Scrapbook  by Fred Bronson


Misskim | 41 comments I love sales and the 10% off at BD has allowed me to finally purchase 'Various Positions' which I have had my eye on for a rather long time. While I was in there I ordered 'The Name of the Wind' and 'Love letters of great men and women'.
Picked up 'The Rogue' in Big W yesterday too.
Possibly time to restrict my book buying habit :/

I just picked up Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey

All from Big W! The last one was on for $15 at Target, so Big W price matched from just under $25! Good saving:)

Deborah Burrows | 9 comments The Piper's Son by Merlina Marchetta. I loved Looking for Alibrandi some years ago and I've recently got into her again. I and tore through On the Jellico Road and Saving Francesca. Piper's son is a 'grown up' sequel. She's great.

Tamara | 76 comments I bought one book myself this week Deborah's A Stranger in My Street. I'm looking forward to reading it, and seeing her at Koorliny (the local arts centre/theatre) for a meet-the-author in July.

And today when I went to the shops with my sister and she bought a couple books for me. I got; Morgan's Law and Jilted. I really looking forward to reading all three books, and hoping that I can get to them before I go overseas in mid-June.

Tamara | 76 comments I told a lie...I did in fact get another book, but I wasn't expecting it this week, so I was very surprised (and happy!) to find it waiting by the front door for me (at least the postie didn't try and shove it in the letterbox!)

The lovely Fiona Palmer sent me a signed copy of her book The Road Home, I bought it as an early birthday present for myself (apparently I'm not content with an overseas holiday, I also need to buy myself a book!!)
