Behind this smile

New decal up on the window at my home library site, Altona North featuring Whaea Ripeka. Part of the #behindthissmile campaign being launched on Saturday at Williamstown Library. Speaking of Willy library one of my clever co- workers made a wee display featuring the funny signs by Reddit user obviousplant, the small sign says #37 Dudes who lost their shirts. All of the community inclusiveness and laughs are to be had at your local public library.

Dolly Parton is on the front cover of the most recent Incite magazine at work. That╩╗s the librarian magazine published for members of ALIA. She has a foundation called Imagination Library that gives children in four countries a book per month from birth until their fifth birthday. This encourages the child to read with help from their family. Imagination Library has joined with a not for profit called United Way Australia to launch the initiative here in Australia. One of the first places to benefit is Doveton, an extremely underprivileged and socially disadvantaged area in the outer South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. I know because this is where I grew up, went to school, and the first library I belonged to was at Autumn Place, Doveton. This initiative of giving children the chance to start reading and build their own library at home gives me hope for the future of young readers in Doveton and other impoverished areas. Dolly Parton is a great performer and a staunch humanitarian and philanthropist. She╩╗s done alright for a dirt poor girl from the Smoky Mountains. Thank you very much for your tireless work in entertainment but even moreso, your inspiration to other dirt poor girls who just love to read.

NOCTURNES REVIEW – HARD ROCK HARLOTS – BOOK 3 – KENDALL GREY

Nocturnes (Hard Rock Harlots, #3)Nocturnes by Kendall Grey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I hate Rax Wrathbone. If I was to meet him I would punch him in the throat and then in the cock. I would probably kick him a few times as he hit the ground. Having said that, I love this book, this series, this author. I would recommend this series and have recommended it to co workers (at the library) and have gifted the series to six friends so far. It is not everyone’s shot of absinthe with a vodka double chaser. The warnings placed at the start of each book in this series are legit and not just to garner attention. If you have to check urban dictionary for some of the acronyms mentioned in the warning disclaimer then you should probably stay away from this series, it is hard core, it is niche, and filthy good writing. There is a lot of erotica on Amazon, much of it not worth the the time and effort of the whispernet delivery. Hard Rock Harlots series delivers believable characters, steamy hot sex scenes that will melt your kindle, hot book boyfriends you wish were real, sexy and strong women who may not be perfect but make the best of what they are and do so without apology. If you are not into the rock and roll lifestyle and all the debauchery it entails then this series is not for you. If you love your fictional sex kinkier than a cheap garden hose then this series with its memorable characters, emulatory sex scenes, and heartbreakingly good plotlines then Strings, Beats, and Nocturnes are for you. You may like Rax the main man of Nocturnes. I don’t, but if he could take a couple of (deserved) hits from me for being a less than savoury character then I would shake his hand and take him to the pub. I would end up dancing on the table with his hot girlfriend, Eve, and all would be right with the world.
