New booklist for 2013
This is what I wait for with baited breath, unsure of what I should read until the list comes out. I am like an unanchored ship. The list has been issued thanks to Leanne, our hardworking, yoga-chilled organiser. We all just come up with all of the books that we might like to read over the year (it is always way more than we could ever read, like a group of greedy children at a table of party food grabbing all, then realising that we can only fit so much in). Leanne's job is to cull the list and, as she explained to us over our Kris Kringle last year, to fit the books to the moods of the seasons! Well she has certainly been doing a great job for the 12 years I've been going.
Now all that is left is to madly read the first one by February 6th. First off the rank is Questions of Travel by Michelle De Kretser and I'm looking forward to once I get hold of my copy.
If you would like to know what other books we are reading this year and would like to read along, check out My Book Club Page for the most recent list. I take no responsibility for any last minute changes as the year chugs along. There is nothing wrong with changing our minds!
Happy New Year!
