Nest / by Simpson, Inga,

Publication: . 296 pages ; 21 cm.

I picked up this book as part of the Reading Challenge at the library and found it a story which quietly drew me in. The descriptions of the birdlife around Jen's home, her relationship with her young student and the terrible event of a child going missing which raises so many memories for Jen. her best friend also went missing when she was at school and the day after her father left and never returned. Jen's art is her solace as she works through her inner demons. I would highly recommend this book. Lynne Added 14/09/2015 by Lynne

The paper trail : an unexpected history of the world's greatest invention / by Monro, Alexander,

Publication: . 368 pages : 24 cm

A fascinating book which traces the history of paper beginning with the translators responsible for the spread of paper across the east as it was used by theologians, scientists and artists to spread information and ideas. Paper finally reached Europe in 1276 and was indispensable to the scholars and translators during the Renaissance and Reformation. Added 14/09/2015 by Heather

All the light we cannot see / by Doerr, Anthony,

Publication: London : Fourth Estate, 2014 . 496 pages ; 24 cm. Date: 2014

This book is really two parallel stories set during World War II, about two children, growing up in two different countries. In Nazi Germany, a young orphan boy named Werner lives in a children’s home with his young sister. He is exceptionally bright and curious with a knack for fixing radios. His talents in math and science win him a spot in a Youth Academy. This is his only chance of escape from a grim life working in a coal mine. In Paris, France there is a shy redhead named Marie-Laure who lives with her locksmith father who works at a museum. When she goes blind from a degenerative disease at the age of six, her father builds a detailed miniature model of their neighborhood, so she can memorize every street, building and corner by tracing the model with her nimble fingers. When the Germans attack Paris she and her father must flee to the coastal town of Saint-Malo. Added 14/09/2015 by Heather

Valley of hope / by Price, Sarah,

Publication: Morristown, N.J. : Price Publishing, 2012 . 258 p. ; 23 cm. Date: 2012

I found this book had a very slow start to it. It was interesting to me for the way it showed how pressure can effect people. The continued stress Samuel Lapp is under and how those effects spread through the whole community was quite illuminating. Added 01/09/2015 by Sharon

Polymer clay in a day : over 15 exciting projects, from gifts to accessories for the home / by Ralph, Emma.

Publication: London : New Holland. 2004 . 80 p.; 28 cm Date: 2004

Having never worked with polymer clay before, I found this book very interesting. I was surprised at the bright colours you can get. I found some of the projects quite interesting looking, but my favourite by far was the fluorite mokume eggs on page 48. A good read Added 01/09/2015 by Sharon
