Where did you get your name? after a past family member, or are you more adventerous and name your children after characters in books, or famous people maybe a first love then again it could have been some other reason.

Just in the last couple of weeks a very close family friend called Laura had just given birth to healthy little girl, I can remember her telling me that when she was reading To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee that her favorite character was Jean Louise (Scout) & if she was lucky enough to have a daughter that was the name she would chose.

Now as things go and they usually do approximately ten days ago after much labor a beautiful little girl called Scout arrived to the joy of nervous farther, family and friends alike, her mum had to do the all the work anyway. Her close friends were all around to support. Well done everyone
I have been busy working in the used bookshop, but today I was lucky enough to call in and see Laura & Scout, and what a beautiful baby girl she is, I only hope she enjoys reading as much as her mum, which I’m sure she will. I know she will get lots of good books delivered at just the right moment. Go Laura & Scout.

Cheers

I was keen to go to the local West Lakes Seniors Computer Club,

ASCCA

Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association

its the only place close to where I live that I can learn about Adobe Photoshop. I made my way out there at the appointed time, paid to join the computer club, paid for the course now all I have to do is wait, its only taken me about two years to learn how to use. Especially seeing that I collect second hand & used books computer books of all types

Then it was time for the meeting which took a long while start, but when it did it was good , to listen to the speakers, for me it was an eye opening event to see so many elderly people that were involved with computers and running the club itself, it really challenged what everyone seems to say that older people don’t absorb new technology. Now I really know this is not true because of my friendships with some close friends, but to see so many was a very good sight indeed.

The guest speaker was Andrew Boyce from the Morisset library, the speech was very informative, about how the library will be used in the future what things will stay & what things drop by the wayside, all in all it was very informative.

Or come along to Lake Macquarie Secondhand Books “Australia’s most trusted Online Bookshop” and find that used book you want.
