What will you be reading this Australia Day?

by |January 23, 2010

Surely this weekend we should really pick up something by an Australian to read…

Wouldn’t really be right to read U.S.A by John Dos Passos…

Or England, England by Julian Barnes…

Gotta find something really Aussie…

Something dinkum…

So as the mob sings Waltzing Matlida and the cans of VB pile up…

…when friends start telling stories about the time they met Warnie…

…it may be time to slip away….

…take a patriotic pause…

…to catch your breath.
