Continuing my "lets learn about Australia" adventure...

I've just finished my Bryce Courtenay binge..

I've read, "The power of one" "Tandia", "Matthew Flinders cat", "Potato Factory", "Tommo and Hawk" and  "solomons song", all back to back and continuously over the last 3/4 months.

Some of it helped with my citizenship test, but it was all absolutely brilliant and rivetting reading, all ~8000 pages  :eye-popping:

I then found the kids version of "Power of one", which my oldest boy who turns 9 tomorrow will love...

Great writing and reading.

I've just started Grain Brain - easy to read if a bit hysterical. Another medico who says dump the carbs - this one says you'll get Alzheimer's if you don't. :eek:
