Good Reading : July 2017
GOOD READING JULY 2017 9 my heart was a shy little boy, about four years old, who was brought in by his grandmother. He wanted to say thank you and goodbye to the owner for all the books that are now on his little bookshelves at home. Clearly this dear little boy has already discovered a passion for books, stories and, without a doubt, being read to by the wise adults in his life. So while there is such love for books in one so young, we must cling to the hope that there will always be a need for bookshops. And I cling to the hope that one day in the near future, that sad empty shop with its lights out will become another bright and much-loved bookshop, where the shelves will be packed to the rafters and the welcome is always warm for bookwor ms young and old. Best wishes Judith Caine, Donvale Vic Dear Editor In recent times I have been doing a lot of driving. It has been the perfect excuse to listen to the audiobook of Helen Garner’s Everywhere I Look. Helen is also the reader of this collection of essays and vignettes about her life. The observations of herself, other people and contemporary issues are so sharp and insightful that I have found myself mesmer ised. I have nearly finished the book and already I know that I will listen to it again soon, as there is so much to take in. Thank you, Helen, for sharing your life with us so that we can know ourselves better.
