This week I've been in Perth (Australia) for 3 days for work, and while the travelling gives me reading time, catching up when you get home again takes time.
I'm supposed to strictly be watching what I eat too, and going out to dinner 3 nights in a row makes me a bit scared of the scales.
Books I've finished this week: the links will take you to my reviews.
- A MAN'S GOT TO HAVE A HOBBY, William McInnes
Not what I usually read but an engaging Australian author, whom I heard at Adelaide Writers' week. If you want a picture of what growing up in Australia was like 30-40 years ago, a good read.
My rating 4.4
- THUMBPRINT, Friedrich Glauser
Recommended to me a while back, and what a good read it was.
My rating 4.6
- THE ARSENIC LABYRINTH, Martin Edwards
I haven't read the one between this, the 3rd in the series, and the first THE COFFIN TRAIL, but now I will
My rating: 4.5
- HARUM SCARUM, Felicity Young
3rd published novel by an Australian author, crime fiction set in Western Australia
We haven't heard the last from her.
My rating 4.5
The changeover to winter time at 2am this morning in some Australian states has apparently played havoc with computer systems, including those controlling airlines. Even the email server at my ISP has sent every email today twice!
At 2am this morning Perth "went off" daylight saving so we got an extra hour to sleep in, which would have been really good if Qantas hadn't kept SMSing me with new flight departure times from about 5.30 am.
At this moment I think Perth and Brisbane may be the only capital cities not on daylight saving and so the time difference between Perth and Adelaide for this week is 2hrs 30 mins.
