  1. What's on the Bookshelf

    In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. Go here to find out more.

    My apologies for yet another slow week. Just as my concerns about the possibility of developing RSI eased, I managed to give my left thumb a good hard crack. I was starting to worry that I might have sprained it but there's no swelling and it's not bothering me so much today. I think I just strained it a bit. But, as you can imagine, the past few days I have not felt like doing an awful lot of typing and have mostly been wanting to continue resting my hands and fingers from the keyboard. Hopefully this week will see things settle back to normal again.

    The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas
    I am trying something a bit different with The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas. The Slap gives the perspectives of eight people who witness a man slapping a child that is not his own at a neighbourhood barbecue and the consequences that follow. Tsiolkas is an Australian author so I can put this one towards the Aussie Author Challenge as well!

      I'd have a hard time with the book you are reading.

      I hope your thumb feels better quick! Take care of yourself!

      I do try to take care of myself but I am very accident prone. I woke up this morning to find that I have managed to strain my neck in my sleep. Joy.

      hope your thumb (and neck!) are all better soon, i read the slap and loved it but wow it was challenging! i'm looking forward to seeing what you think of it.

    4. Don't be sorry for having a slow week. I did too. But I have enough books here to keep me going for a long while. Hope you have a great reading week!
