Fletcher, John, 1934- Dust of the land
March, Mia The Meryl Streep movie club
Coelho, Paulo Adultery
The library sent me an email to remind me that I have to return the above three books by Thursday, the 8th of June 2017.
” Please return them, by the due date, or renew at: . . . . ”
And there is the URL of the Wollongong Library as well as their phone number. That means it is possible to renew by email or phone. I can renew the books if I have not finished reading them by next Thursday.
It is a reminder only as follows:
“04 Jun 2017
Reminder Only:Your items are due soon”
The reminder was sent off 4 days early, which is quite helpful in case I want to renew.
To me these emails are a good record to see what sort of books I have been borrowing. All the above books happen to be large print books. I find large print is so much easier for me to read. When I read something on the computer, I usually enlarge the print. To read small print, tends to tire my eyes.
The novel “Dust of the Land” by John Fletcher I did borrow for a second time, since I very much liked reading it when I borrowed it the first time. I was happy to read it once more! It is an epic novel set in Australia. I am always on the lookout for good Australian novels.
I find Paulo Coelho is a very good author. I like his style of writing very much. The main character in the novel “Adultery” is a married woman, who is going through a major depression. This is psychologically very interesting and written in a very sensitive way.
Mia March’es novel shows me something about contemporary life in America. For instance how a certain family deals with a tragic car accident, cancer treatment, single motherhood and adultery. It is all there. And some interesting discussions about Meryl Streep movies!
And of course I recently read “The Dry” by Jane Harper as mentioned in this post:
