Sixteen days later I remembered I usually (OK, once) do a quick countdown of how my reading has gone in the first six months of the year. Last time I might have done the whole financial year.

Jane and 25 other people liked T.D. Whittle's review of From the Wreck:
From the Wreck by Jane Rawson
"*** Plot spoilers alert ***

I had never read Jane Rawson until now, and I just love this book. From the Wreck weaves a tale based in a completely believable "real-world" Port Adelaide of the 1850s, but the net is shot through with luminous (or, rat..." Read more of this review »
From the Wreck by Jane Rawson
"Thank you Jane Rawson for giving me this book to read.

When I first started reading this book I couldn't 'get it'. The part after the ship sank was just a bit confusing for me. I just wasn't understanding what was going on but I kept on reading and..." Read more of this review »

“I like a lot of talk in a book and I don't like to have nobody tell me what the guy that's talking looks like. I want to figure out what he looks like from the way he talks”
John Steinbeck

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

“There was a time—until very recently in the scheme of things—when there were no wild animals, because every animal was wild; and humans were few. Animals, and animal presence over us and around us. Over every horizon, animals. Their skins clothing our skins, their fats in our lamps, their bladders to carry water, meat when we could get it.”
Kathleen Jamie, Sightlines

“I've found that there is always some beauty left -- in nature, sunshine, freedom, in yourself; these can all help you.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl
