Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at

Books, books and more books
Comedian Groucho Marx once said, "Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read."

What's that got to do with the price of fish?

The Capalaba Rotary Club Bookfest has been scheduled for the first weekend in May. Add it to your diaries now!

Last year

There will be thousands of bargain-priced books and magazines available for sale. Books covering an amazing array of genres will mean that all interests are catered for, including crime, cookery, large print, biographies, Australia, gardening, history, war, travel and humour.

Always popular are the children's books. Isn't wonderful to see a child's face light up when they get involved in a new storybook? I'm always picking up books for the little people in our lives.

Another of my weaknesses is magazines, especially travel or garden variety. Not only are these great for school projects, but also for craft projects. Decoupage anyone?

And don't forget that once you've read your books, you can always donate them to Rotary for their next Bookfest. There's a shute specifically for this in a building at the back of the block.

Donating your books keeps prices down

I'm a bit like Groucho who also said, "I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book."
