Day 2 of Photo a day January 2013:
These books are new to my bookshelves, having moved in during the month of December. At the top of the pile is a beautiful calendar produced by photographer extraordinaire, Rose Frankcombe, featuring images of Tasmanian water scenes followed by:
Lemon Sherbert and Dolly Blue by Lynn Knight
The World Last Night by MTC Cronin
Beneath our Armour by Peter Bakowski
Australian Poetry Journal Volume 2
A set of three Australiana books by Geoff Hocking
- Gold Fever
- Wild Colomial Boys
- Under the Southern Cross
The Greatest Lies in History by Alexander Canduci
Man or Mouse by Matt Whyman
Jim Stynes - My Journey
So far I've read the two poetry books, absolutely blown away by both and may never write another poem myself again - well I will, but must remind myself we are all different, therefore writing from different perspectives on life in a style that is our own.
I have started reading Lemon Sherbet and Dolly Blue and reserve comment until I've read more. Whichever way you look at it, this is an eclectic collection of reading material for me to lose myself in. Whether fiction or non fiction, I can only admire the hard work of the authors in producing these books, having travelled the long journey of the writer and poet over the rocky road to publication.
