August Wrap Up

This is a monthly post done at the beginning of each month to quickly recap what I’ve read through the previous month.

 

Aaaand, August is done. This year is absolutely flying. Work continues to keep me busy – shocker, I know. We’ve got our second yearly accreditation coming up, so everyone is worker-bee-ing to get everything officially official and skills and protocols all up to scratch. Because of that, I’ve spent more time power-napping on the train this month than intended! Oops. But I clearly need the extra sleep so we’ll let that one slide shall we?

July Wrap Up

This is a monthly post done at the beginning of each month to quickly recap what I’ve read through the previous month.

 

July. Another month bites the dust! I had an awesome month, I took a couple of weeks off work and went on a holiday. I might do a post on it soon – coz why the hell not? I did the Ghan train from Darwin down to Adelaide, with a stop off in the middle to visit Uluru. Amazing. I got some gorgeous photos – with my brand new fancy-pants camera. Anyway, suffice to say (for the moment) the trip was just awesome. What with plane rides, train trips and lots and lots of hours on busses, I got LOTS of reading done.

 

Just FYI – I didn’t carry all these books with me in hard copy – that would be madness *cough*. I did take a couple though, but I read more e-books in a short space of time than I have… ever, I think.
