What do you read?


"What counts, in the long run, is not what you read; it is what you sift through your own mind; it is the ideas and impressions that are aroused in you by your reading"  Eleanor Roosevelt

I have recently reread Jackson's Track by Daryl Tonkin.  I think every Australian should read this book.  It is a wonderful, moving and tragic true story and shows how misguided white Australian "dogooders" ruined the lives of so many Aboriginal Australians.  The book gives wonderful descriptions and insights into the life of the Aboriginal community.  A way of life we could all learn alot from!
