I'm back from holidays having all sorts of thoughts. Going away always makes me want to redo my life. Travelling makes me want to write non-fiction. So I've been having a spring-clean, trying to cull. Books, of course, are impossible. For the archives: this article about reading, published about a month ago in The Age, is my favourite thing I've written this year. In other news I was very heartened to hear that Mountain Girl has a memoir coming out mid 2015.
