Eyesight problems put a crimp in my February reading, but here’s a very brief summary.

This month’s top read is Eyrie by Tim Winton. Bloody brilliant. Essential reading.

Other Fiction Reads:

 The Great Passage – Shion Miura and Juliet Winters Carpenter The intense world of Japanese lexicography and dictionary compilers. A must-read for word lovers.

The Cleaner, the cat & the Space Station – Fay Abernethy. A Space-opera with a subversive Utopian message. Interesting.

Jeffrey Archer – Turn a Blind Eye. Courtrooms & crime. Same-old same-old .


Beyond the Smoke that Thunders – Lucy Pope Cullen . Vintage travel/memoir of life in the late 1930s on the Roan Antelope Mine, Zambia. I loved it.

And that’s it, dear book-lovers.  Better luck in March !
