Some of you are super fast readers :shock:

I'm ploddingly slow with reading .. got a few easy reads on the go atm...

The Avacado Plantation, Boom or bust in the Australian film industry, by film writer and critic, David Stratton - aptly titled and well researched commentary on the effect of the 10BA tax concessions on the Australian film industry during the 80s .. includes a comprehensive look at 270 Australian films from that decade. An interesting read (I hear David Stratton's voice - he does a movie review program with Margaret Pomeranz, for the ABC).

What is Your Dangerous Idea? Today's leading thinkers on the unthinkable, a compilation edited by John Brockman. Content is as it says on the tin, with each contributor summing up their response to the title question in a few pages. Nothing new or shocking in what I've read so far, though some mildly provocative opinions nonetheless.

Free to a Good Home, by Catherine Deveny. Witty and sharp tongued, though her views often don't resonate for me.
