Inbetween whingeing about my workload, the crowds of Christmas shoppers and my deep desire to escape to an island that is deserted except for a small cocktail bar and stay there until 2 January, I've been enjoying other people's rather more productive blogging:
- Kate Gordon's 7 questions not to ask a YA writer made me nod and shake my head and cluck in agreement (I get asked 5 and 7 on a frequent basis, as kate says, only by adults and only by those who never read YA)
- Adele Persnickety Snark announced that she's coming to melbourne (yay!) to join the State Library of Victoria's Centre for Youth Literature (double yay!)
- in related CYL news, the 2011 Reading Matters program has been announced and it looks like a doozy
- I was pleased to see some of my favourites on Popbitch's list of Top 10 movie geeks
- and of course I enjoyed My Girl Friday's contribution to Inkcrush's 2010 Best of series!
