Uni work and actual work have been taking up so much of my time lately. Consequently my reading list has been suffering a bit. When I was on holidays I was burning through it, but now I'm having to put a bookmark in some of my recent reads including:
1. Frankie Magazine -
A wonderful source of inspiration. I love to just pick a random page & work with it.
2. The Pocket Book of Stones by Robert Simmons -
I'm glad I chose to buy the pocket version of this book. I'm always bringing it to the bead shop or to Indonesia for looking up stones on the go.
3. Canon D-LSR Shooting Modes (Camera bag companion) -
One of the first purchases I made after getting my camera. I'm a bit technology challenged so a handbook with clear instructions is always of use.
4. On the Road by Jack Kerouac -
I find the book's 'stream of consciousness' narrative refreshing. Unfortunately though the unique way in which the book was written makes it a bit difficult to follow at times, but I promised myself I'd read the book before I even thought about watching the movie. So here I am taking it for what it is/was. A revolutionary piece of literature.
5. The Touch of Silk by Betty Roland -
I'm reading this play as part of my Australia on stage course. An Aussie tragedy set in the time leading up to the Great Depression. Its protagonist is a French girl far from home trying to hold onto her roots & keep her relationship with an local battler from falling apart against the harshest of back drops. A new favourite for sure.
6. Salads -
Meat free week is upon us. Unfortunately I forgot to sign up & participate. So I'm planning to redeem myself by overdosing on delicious salads.
7. last but not least...Flower Fairies by Cicely Mary Barker...as per usual
