Recommended Reading List

"Reading makes a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man."
- Sir Francis Bacon

Books, in pursuit of knowledge, a source of pleasure, not to mention hours of amusement and leisure. Blogged earlier, never to underestimate the power of the mind, one of favourite books. Was honestly hoping it could help with the dimensions of a particular male appendage, but alas, it was not the case :(

Nonetheless, here's my list of must read tomes ;)


Runaway trolleys are a real problem down under. If one reported a lost shopping trolley, you get the chance to enter into a monthly competition to win $1,000. If Aussies had a book like this, well, competitions wouldn't be necessary, we would be able to direct lost trolleys home.

Knit one purl two. No knitter should be without this.
What more need be said...

This one stolen from Gem. Yep it's definitely wood :)

Looks like everyone is trying to get onto the band wagon.

Cat lovers, note!

Mandatory reading for all chefs and cooks.
Followed to the letter by those serving gelato at the Coogee Bay Hotel *ugh*

I'm considering taking up woodwork in my old age...

Walk away!
What were you thinking?

Sending a crate of these books to the Buzkashi tribe in Afghanistan.
Exchange for a kg of their finest :p

Wish I read this when I was in college... *sigh*

Action, adventure, exotic location, bondage, cuffs, whips
and a pygmy nymphomaniac... Sex sells!

Happy reading and have a great weekend :)

Well, since Im partial to field guides, I would have to take the trolley one....but as soon as I saw it I cursed and thought WHY DIDNT I THINK OF THAT! I have all kinds of comic material on wayward street trolleys!!
