Note the title and fear not. It is not In my bedside cupboard.
I feel as if I am starved for spare time of late. I just can't manage to knock either of these books off, yet they are both nearly read.
I looked at broadcaster Jon Faine's book last week, From Here to There, with a view to buy, until I saw the price! $40! He co-wrote the book with his son and it recounts his journey from Melbourne to London in a 4wd. It is on Ebay but not much cheaper, except for one copy that was suspiciously cheap and had to be picked up.
Tim Winton's Cloudstreet has been on my list of books to read since it was published, some twenty or thirty years ago. I looked for that at Ebay and it is readily available. There have been a few editions but I think I would like the original.
Jane Clifton has written a new book. I just love the gal. Star of Prisoner, comedian, actor, writer. Clever too! Her new book is called The Address Book and tells of her thirty plus homes she has lived in. As the daughter of an English army officer, she and her family lived in many countries. Jane was born in Gibraltar, one sister in Germany and one in Malaya. I am excited about the book. I hope it doesn't disappoint. I found a few loose shekels in my car ashtray. Iwill buy it today and then have three books on the go.
