Work in Progress

A while ago (ok, quite some years ago) I mentioned that one of my works in progress was an advent calendar for my nephews, which I intended to have finished in time for Christmas. Yeah, I didn’t quite. In fact, it languished in the bottom of my stash until just recently, when I rediscovered it, decided the kids can never be too old for advent calendars, and started work again. It’s still got a long way to go, but it’s looking good so far:

In other news, a few cool recent catches:

Boktjuven by Markus Zusak, which was one of the books I registered on the Sydney YHA’s bookshelf, is now in Sweden.

Web of Deceit by Glenn Meade had nearly a month between release and catch, but was caught in the same place I’d left it.

Death of a Doll by Hilda Lawrence was an even slower catch: two years after it was released!

Teddy Bears by Martin Leman – really sweet journal entry.

Windmills of the Gods by Sidney Sheldon – at the other end of the scale, a rather terse journal entry for an OBCZ book.

Hood by Emma Donoghue – and even terser…

What Every Woman Should Know About Her Partner’s Money by Shelby White & Lynne Spender – another OBCZ catch.

Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D.H. Lawrence – and another with two years between release and catch.
