Journal Entry 4 by wingcatsalivewing from Rooty Hill, New South Wales Australia on Thursday, May 5, 2005
Journal received. I'll have to think about which books I've read that I'd recommend to others.

wombles, I might be going to the Sth Sydney meetup on 15/5/5, so I'll take this with me & see if anyone there would like to share their favourites, if you agree.

Well, I've filled a page of the journal, and here are a few of the best I've read lately:
The Alphabet Sisters by Monica McInerney (Chick);
Einstein's Dreams by Alan Lightman (Lit & Fict);
See Jane Run by Joy Fielding (Suspense/Thrill);
Sky Burial by Xinran (Biog);
The Virgin Blue by Tracy Chevalier (Fict);
American Gods by Neil Gaiman (Fantasy/Mythology);
The Shadow of the Winds by Carlos Ruiz Zafon (Lit & Fict); and,
Tomorrow, When the War Began by John Marsden (YA).

The Picton clan added a few more recommendations & should make themselves known shortly.

Journal Entry 6 by Skyring from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory Australia on Sunday, May 15, 2005
What an excellent idea, Wombles! A book full of good books, including itself, if you look at my page. I wish I had more time to look at my own bookshelves and pick out those most thumbed!

Thanks for passing this around for return to you. Most Bookcrossers I know are flat out reading all the books they have, let alone looking for more, but you are an inspiration to us all!

The Winner - David Baldacci
Children of the Dust - Louise Lawrence
The Hot Zone - Richard Preston
Couplehood - Paul Reiser
Kitchen Table Wisdom: Stories That Heal - Rachel Naomi Remen
The Witching Hour - Anne Rice
Obernewtyn - Isobelle Carmody
The Five People You Meet In Heaven - Mitch Albom
Swahili For The Broken-Hearted - Peter Moore
The Tick Tock Man - Terence Strong

This is too hard - I can never decide what my favourite books are! I'll try and come up with a list though...

Journal Entry 16 by juli2007 from Beachmere, Queensland Australia on Friday, July 4, 2008
I picked this up at the Brisbane Convention and not sure if this journal was to travel home with me.. but like a couple of other books it made its way into my stash bag, I have written some suggestions and will let Pookie08 write her suggestions before letting it travel to some more Aussie Bcers, I had a great time at the convention and it was great to finally meet you Wombles!
