- Tim Winton has won his fourth Miles Franklin book award for Breath. I haven’t read many of his books aside for Dirt Music which won the Miles Franklin in 2002.
- This is the BIG news – the Tomorrow series will finally be made into a movie trilogy! They’re focusing on the first three books and will be written and directed by Stuart Beattie who also co-wrote the script for ‘Australia’. I hope it turns out to be wonderful.
I also bought some more of those orange Penguins which were further marked down. They are just wonderful although I’m pretty sure they will probably disintergrate in my hands in ten years time. New titles are:
- In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
- The Surgeon of Crawthorne by Simon Winchester
- The Consolations of Philosophy by Alain de Botton
- Tales of the Unexpected by Roald Dahl
I must have almost half the available titles. I also got my Zafon which I’m very excited about.
