1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Closing Monday, November 23 at 12:01 AM EST
    Reopening Sunday November 29 at 12:01 AM EST

    Closing Thursday December 24 at 12:01 AM EST
    Reopening Sunday, January 3 at 12:01 AM EST

    I love well-worn, pre-loved books, with writing on the pages and names and phone numbers sribbled inside the cover. Makes me imagine who this person is, when they read the book, what they thought. To me store-bought, brand-new copies are rather sterile compared, although they smell and feel lovely, I also prefer the older cover-art usually, the retro, hand-drawn quality...I also love browned, faded and spotty pages, that crackle when you turn them...so much fun, all part of the reading experience for me...and I love to hunt them out - markets, op shops, second hand bookshops, on line shopping sites and library sales (just purchased a copy, in hardback of Just Before Sunset, for $1.00...), from my local library. Bargain!!

    I am meant to be working on a uni assignment right now, about my painting and my painterly influences, but looking at that image of cake above...am so hungry. Pay day today, might splurge out on something like that!! coffee, cake and a dusty old novel...

    Welcome. To say it has been read would be an understatement.
