Dark Lake by Sarah Bailey

Local Review: Thanks Emily Nixon Five women set off on a trek, organised by their Boss, to see how they get through it together with no problems. A test of endurance in the bush and on the mountains. Four days endurance in rough and demanding terrain, with no problems.  Armed only with small tents and boil in the bag foods, plus a small gas canister stove to cook it on and sleeping bags to sleep…

Sharing: Morris Gleitzman’s Genuinely Smart July.

From Morris Gleitzman : Australian Children’s Laureate 2018-2019 Sharing because it’s too important not to share, share with your kids too. It’s Genuinely Smart July. But you knew that already, right? Because you’re a story reader and you’re on the ball, sharp as a tack, with all the lights on upstairs. I can see you now, curled up and happily reading a story in which, as always, a character is trying to solve or survive…

I could never have imagined the books telling their story so passionately and enjoyable. “Likely Story” by The Sunshine Coast Theatre Company reminds us all of the power and purpose all the books have. Have you ever imagined what your favourite book would tell you…

Buderim Buying is environmentally conscious

What are the residents of Buderim buying? We are a wonderfully environmentally conscious group of people in Buderim.

Romancing the Author

A gathering of like-minded people is a wonder to be seen. The exchange of commentary about topics all are excited about is enlightening. Sometimes the connections of ideas and interests just work so well together and this is what I was lucky enough to experience and be part of recently. In the library at the Immanuel Lutheran College located in Buderim on the Sunshine Coast, Romancing the author began. A group of well-recognized children’s and…

Top Shelf Travel

With Easter fast approaching and at least four days free to take some time out, it’s a great time to think about local areas to travel to and relax or get some fitness in and do a walk or hike in our beautiful countryside. Planning these short breaks seem to be last on our organization list but can have therapeutic benefits long after the holiday has finished. The house maintenance can wait, some time to recalibrate the…

Relaxing in Whistler

Sitting here watching the snow fall, nursing a cold in the Whistler Library I’m reminded of the wonderful world of books and what they can offer in so many ways. I’ve tried meditation, yoga, walking (which I still power on with) swimming, gym classes, drinking and many other ways of relaxing but the feeling of sitting in a library distilling my thoughts grabs me like no other relaxation. It grounds me and makes me feel…
