I did a book talk this morning at Ashburton library. The titles I reviewed were:

Sacred Hearts – Sarah Dunnant

Life Mask – Emma Donoghue

Sarah Thornhill – Kate Grenville

Eona – Alison Goodman

All great reads

I spent the afternoon at the State Library of Victoria.

The above titled book, dated 1839, was just one of the volumes I found myself reading – along with medical journals, sick lists, and general summarys of emigrant voyages.

I love the research side of writing. 

I also saw Antoni Jach in the rare books reading room – so all in al, a true literary day.
