Interrupting the interregnum to report:
(a) you can vote for the best literature blog in the Weblog Awards for 2008, but be warned - the field is very limited, and one person has a ridiculous number of fans voting. (Gee, I wonder who that could be...)
(b) some terrific blogging over at the State Library's Summer Read, from Ann Blainey (from a boat, no less), Greg de Moore and Dennis McIntosh, whose posts on his memoir of life as a shearer, Beaten By A Blow, are quite affecting.
(c) the flowers at Cloudehill gardens in the Dandenongs are looking amazing.
As we were.
