2017 Wrap Up

2017 was not a bad year for reading, but I started my English Lit degree in October, and since then I completely lost control of my reading time, and only caught up in the last 10 days of December, because I stayed home and didn’t go traveling like in the past years. Apart from my […]

2016 Wrap Up

Year 2015 Wrap Up and 2016 Plans

Happy new year good readers! I haven’t done stats for a long time on this blog, but with all the diversity talks that seem to happen recently *cough* #diversedecember #ReadDiverse2016, I feel inclined to do so.

I Spent My New Year in a Tow Truck (Plus 2010 In Review)

Yes I spent a good portion of my new year’s eve on the side of the road, in the middle of nowhere, about an hour from Melbourne. It was the hottest day of the summer of 39C and our car gave up (or blew up–I saw smoke). While waiting for the tow truck we were […]
