now a published author! “Heart‟s fire” published as part
of the Young Writers Program National Novel writing
month, tells the story of a young girl who accidently sets
her neighbour‟s haystack on fire, and relates how the
consequences of her actions change her life. Ada has
promised that we can have a signed copy of this book
soon, so watch out for this promising young writer.
We believe everyone who uses a library is a winner, able

Peg “Drink, Smoke, Pass out—an
Unlikely Spiritual Journey”
by Judith Lucy.
If you enjoyed the TV series “Judith
Lucy‟s Spiritual Journey,” you should
enjoy this book. (Note - expletives are
not deleted or spared so this book may
not be for everyone.)
To balance this one, try something a bit gentler
and slightly quirky. “There Should Be More
Dancing” by Rosalie Hams is an entertaining read.
People from all over the world come into the library.

Enjoying the free wi-fi are Luca, Mattia, Luca and Nicola all
from Italy.
Sue’s just come back from Bali and
was interested to read “Snowing in
Bali”. by Kathryn Bonella, the same
author who wrote Shapelle Corby‟s
story. The “snow” refers to the
drugs on the streets in Bali.
Virginia is now “sold”
on the Touch Kindle
finding it very easy to
use and recommends “CSI Glasgow,”
forensic thrillers by Lin Anderson. If
you like Kathy Reich‟s books then you
will like this author.
Jodie too is now a Kindle fan, loving the new
Australian books we‟ve just added to the kindle
collection this month, such as “Bridie‟s Choice” by
Karly Lane. “Under Southern Skies” by Anne
McCullagh Rennie is available both on our kindle
and on our shelf.
