Hello readers, here I am again with some more tales from this book reader and sometime online book seller. As I mentioned in my last entry, the weather had turned quite chilly and remains the same. I guess it’s to be expected at this time of year. However it doesn’t encourage me to venture out in search of books, that’s for sure. Rob and I did briefly attend an antiques and collectables auction up at Ballarat, but there weren’t many books, and the ones that were there didn’t attract me so I saved my money for another day.
I’ve been having trouble with my laptop recently, and finally it gave up the ghost on Wednesday. It was three years old, so considering the amount of use its had I reckon its stood up pretty well. What fun I’m having with the new one! As you can see it doesn’t take much to amuse me. 🙂
On a non-book related topic, recently I discovered some most exquisite pieces of artwork which are lovingly created by Chelsie Sharp of Echuca. Chelsie’s miniature paper framed keepsakes are so gorgeous I want to order all of them. You can visit Chelsie’s online store, Love Paper Scissors where there are many examples of her work on display. Below is an example of what this talented young lady does.
You will all probably be familiar with the annual MS Readathon, where children are encouraged to obtain sponsors to raise money to assist sufferers of Multiple Sclerosis. Well now there is a version for adults, called The Novel Challenge. I’ve joined a group, named ‘Twitter’ and so far I’m on to my third book. The group is still looking for donations so if this is something that you’d like to contribute to or would like to join in to raise funds, the link is http://register.thenovelchallenge.org.au/The-Novel-Challenge/Twitter
Anyway, time marches on so it’s back to the books for me. Bye for now.
