More casualties from the Aussie bookshop cull.This time Readers Feast, my favourite bookstore :(
They do tell me they'll be opening again somewhere else in the CBD.
But probably not in time for me to go visit my book there. Sadface.
Apart from my badly chipped nail polish and a kitty toy, what you can see in this picture is:
Silvermay by James Moloney (recommended by Adele and also an Inkys longlister. It's Australian fantasy, YAY!)
The Wilful Eye, Isobelle Carmody & Nan McNab (Eds; WOO more Aussie fantasy! This time short stories.)
Stolen, Lucy Christopher (Last year's Inkys winner; another Adele rec.)
Alaska, Sue Saliba (Heard about a million awesome things about this book)
The Dead, Charlie Higson (my only non-Aussie purchase--ZOMBIES! Grrr Arrrgh)
Eon, Alison Goodman (AKA The Two Pearls of Wisdom. I like the new title and packaging better.)
The 2011 Inkys longlist is now up on Inside a Dog.
In other news, last night I went to a costume party dressed as Julia from Nineteen Eighty-Four. Note the red sash around the waist, which signifies membership to the Anti-sex League.
Nobody got my costume! Bah. I loved wearing it though.
Currently sitting on my lap is a mopey kitty who got spayed on Tuesday. We tried taking off the cone today but, devil as she is, she went straight for her stitches. Back on went the cone.
