5 boxes containing a total of 181 books for children and young adults arrived this morning. Over the next 2 months I'm compiling a longlist for two of the Bob Carr Memorial Literary Awards - oops, I mean the NSW Literary Awards (which our illustrious new premier has stripped of their "Premier's" label): the Patricia Wrightson for children up to secondary school level, and the Ethel Turner for young people at secondary school level.

This is a fabulous new form of work avoidance for me, involving lots of other people's shiny books. *salivates*

Let us know if there is anything decent in the sf and fantasy line?

You bet - there's about a 50-50 split in the YA books between naturalistic and sf/f

Sounds like fun, although it could get fatiguing after awhile.

I meant to congratulate you on the WF Awards and just got bogged down in stuff. And so lovely to meet you in Brisbane.

Er, rather, meet you in Sydney. I am a tad fragmented at the moment.
