    Great to hear about the speech pathology awards – what a great crossover! I hope the cat doesn’t die at the end of the Sonya Hartnett book. She has a bad habit of that ;-)

    Wonderful news about “Bring up the Bodies”. This is one of the very few novels I’ve read that made me want to stop whatever I was doing during the day in order to read on. I though “Wolf Hall” was great, but this one is just so much better.

      It’s hard to imagine that a sequel can be so much better than the original book. No pressure on Mantel for book 3 then, is there!

    Yes Meredith, I certainly do agree with the judging committee. I do wonder if Mantel can keep it up for the 3rd book.
