Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Book haul for word nerds!

The Australian National Dictionary: Australian Words and Their Origins - 2 Volumes A-L and M-Z - Bruce    Moore

I've been lusting after this 2 volume set since Oxford announced its scheduled publication and today MT gave it to me for my birthday!  It's so very, very beautiful.  I just keep staring at it.  It's 2 volumes of 16,000 Australian specific words, so MT is also hoping now I'll be able to understand him.  ;)


He also ordered a new timber bookcase for the 'library'... so expect some shelfies in a few weeks.  :)
