Firmin by Sam Savage

Firmin is a lovely little book I first heard of from Michael Kindness. They’re sure called booksellers for something! I have read two books and bought one book since I started listening to their podcasts not so long ago. I read Firmin soon after reading I Am a Cat, which is kinda cute because they’re […]

Happy Holidays All!

Courtesy of Telltale Games. Or Merry Christmas to all who celebrate! We had our Christmas dinner yesterday, just the two of us. It was 30°C and the sun still bright at 8pm, but we do what we can with the glorious Australian summer!

Corduroy Mansions by Alexander McCall Smith and Andrew Sachs (Audiobook/Podcasts)

Corduroy Mansions is officially my first audiobook, and podcast! What a whole new world I had discovered when I discovered both! Can’t believe what I’d been missing all this time! To trace back a little, I am never a good listener. As in I often miss what people say in general, even in my first […]

I Am a Cat by Sōseki Natsume (Volume One)

The holiday time is coming closer and I find myself just want to indulge in light reading. I came back from the library last week with heaps of graphic novels. I heard a couple of times before how people who never read comics can get confused about where to look on the pages, since there […]
