Book update

I'll get around to a Christmas in Sydney post eventually.. when I feel up to it :/

But for now, here's a few books I've read since August..

Nineteen Eighty-Four - George Orwell
I finished reading this just before we went overseas.  Had to force myself to start this book because I knew it was going to be depressing (I'd seen the John Hurt movie a long long time ago - didn't remember too much about it other than it was depressing).  It lived up to expectations, but at least I can say I've read it now.

Bare Bones - Kathy Reichs
Stole this one off Chay when we visited in July.  Really enjoyed this one, wouldn't mind reading some of her other books.  Bones' character in the books is surprisingly "normal" as opposed to the very odd character in the TV show.

Jaws - Peter Benchley
Started reading this just after watching it on telly a while back.  It has a few differences to the movie, and actually I think I prefer the way they did things in the movie better.

Seven Little Australians - Ethel Turner
I'd read this a long long time ago and may or may not have seen the tv show.  Not a bad little book.  Actually it was kinda fun reading this book which was set only just after the Little House books, but in a completely different environment.

Wishful Drinking - Carrie Fisher
After seeing her live, I thought it would be fun to get the book.  So the book is pretty much the stage show written down, so a good momento of the night.
