I had a different post prepared for tonight, but I can’t get the Queensland floods off of my mind and it didn’t seem right posting a frivolous little review of a beauty product when my country is experiencing a large scale natural disaster. Within Queensland, an area the size of France & Germany combined has flooded. Today the banks of the Brisbane river broke and the CBD flooded. Lives have been lost, mostly children. At the last count that I heard 72 people were still missing. The situation does not appear to be getting any better, and even once the waters recede the clean up will take a long time. Donations are needed so if you have the funds and the inclination, please donate to either the QLD flood relief appeal or the RSPCA QLD to assist with animal rescue & shelter. If donating money is not an option, please spare a thought for my fellow Aussies who are struggling in Queensland tonight.
Pictured above are the books I managed to finish between June and December of 2010. Out of all of the books I read this year, the top three that I would recommend you read are: The Road by Cormac McCarthy, Room by Emma Donoghue and Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil by John Berendt. I am kind of struggling through the book I’m reading at the moment, so hopefully I can finish that off early in the New Year and start on something else.
