Help me catch back up with our book of the month program and make it awesome! Wouldn't it be awesome if each month we have hundreds of people on this website reading the same book around the same time and chatting about it?!

By the time I've finished days and days looking at a computer screen (being good not to get absorbed - read 'sidetracked' - by forums and the like) all I want to do is get outside and go for long walks. Then I fall asleep reading in bed; so my book progress has been very slow.
Anyhoo, you all have been making great headway. Your comparisons and reviews are most enlightening. Sadly, I have not read “Chemistry Of Tears” nor “The Sense of an Ending” yet. Both are on-hold at the library but if the truth be told, I've put off collecting them because I won't get anything else done!
To be off-topic, but because this is Gannon's honorary Aussie thread, I would just like to say that on 29 April 1770,
Captain James Cook discovered Botany Bay, which is now in the environs of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
He followed Dutch maps of Great South Land but I often wonder what language I would be reading if some other explorer had colonised our country.
Hope your weekend is groovin' along nicely.
Wow have you added to my thinking on this little book. Any thoughts on the strange wave Sarah gives as Tony's was leaving after his weekend visit? I saw someone actually making a similar signal yesterday & I interpreted it as a 'say nothing to anyone, forget it' kind of signal it was only afterwards it brought the similar action in the book to mind. What do you think? Had something happened between Sarah & Tony & was she telling him not to mention it to Veronica?

As a footnote to O&L . I went to my bookclub last weekend, and O&L was book of the month (my pick). Every one bar one person hated it. The girl who liked it and I were the only ones who finished it. She thanked me for the recommendation. We all had a laugh about it but I am banned from picking anoyher book for a while. How rude
Was wondering why you were so quiet .... leaving primrose & Gannon to carry the intellectual responsibility for the Southern Hemisphere, not that they aren't doing a splendid job but we still miss your input.
