I haven't any sort of plans for the future but I reckon things will work out in some manner.

One month after some other bushfire. Primrose Sands, the Forestier Peninsula. February 2013.

The Road, Cormac McCarthy: Heartbreaking post-apocalyptic tale of father and son. Not much more than you can say than it is an emotionally shattering fable yet. Cold, hard and painful. Wonderful! A+.

Nabokov's Quartet, Vladimir Nabokov: A collection of four of Nabokov's short stories, published late in his life. I really liked the first one, which offers a lovely psychological depiction of a flawed fellow in a tricky situation. Two others I enjoyed, another less so. Decent. C+.

The Road is the only book I have read cover to cover in a weekend...and then read it again in the next 36 hours.

I can see that.

I didn't do it as quickly, but I did read Catch-22 back to back the first (two) times.
