I was gossiping the other day with an Aussie colleague who also works in the UK and he told me a horror story about what he discovered when he went back to sort out some of his belongings back in Australia.
And no – it’s not because one of them is a book about calculus (although that personally disturbs me ;)) – my poor friend had gone home to find that his books had been breakfasted on by termites.
On another bookish note, I’ve never before seen these large multi-books in the UK – does anyone know, are these quite usual in Oz??
A little while ago, dear Savidge Reads had his own book related disaster - have you had any similar bookish tragedies?
