The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and Librarything

I FREQUENTLY stop by the Publicity Bureau blog and have spotted lots of things which have caught my interest. Yesterday I saw a piece about The Boy in the Stripped Pyjamas and was so intrigued I googled the book. I then went and bought it yesterday evening.

I began reading it this morning on the bus and while I have only started I am still as intrigued as I was and am looking forward to picking it up again later this evening.

And like many others around the Irish blogosphere I have also been using the cool Librarything but so far have only managed to put up a fraction of books I have. Nevermind the fact I draw a blank when I sit down to input titles. Consider that a work in progress.

Click on the Publicity Bureau website and to see their blog click on the button 'Find out what makes us tick'. Despite having permalinks they only link to the website which is under construction.

Oh, that's something else. I had a program that catalogued books, but it certainly didn't let you interact with people with similar tastes. Must try that out.

Hello again Redmum,

They were interesting links, I had a good peek at them.

And on your recommendation I've order the boy and the striped pj's from my local library, which is terrific because I was ready to dive into a new book.

Bye from Oz!

Do try it out Emma and once again congrats on the beautiful arrival.

Hi again Coastal Aussie, the book is great, well enjoyable. There are a couple of things that didn't work in it for me, but I can say nothing if you haven't read it yet. BUT it is a good read.
