Would you believe the Kaffe Fassett book has been in the house for 3 days and I haven't sat down and had a good look at it yet? I've had a quick flick through and decided it needs 'special time' to sit with a cuppa and at least half an hour to give it it's due. I did spot a younger model Kaffe. He is such an inspiring man.
The November issue of Country Style magazine slipped into the letterbox this week and I had a chance to read some of the articles this morning, waiting for Girl 2 to complete her violin lesson. Featured within the pages is Cradle Mountain, Tasmania!
And now I need to tell you about a book I have just read, while on holidays, called 'The Messenger' by young Australian author, Markus Zusak. It was written in 2002, so maybe it's been read and discussed by lots of people already, but it's new to me and I loved it.
The main protagonist is a 19 year old down-and-out taxi driver and I was wondering how I would relate to him and how much I would enjoy the book, but Zusak's writing is clever and he has woven a tale of suspense, drama, mystery and action and shows us the true value of random acts of kindness. Have you read it? Did you love it too?
What are you reading at the moment?
Hope you have some book/magazine time this weekend.
