    This book had a good review in The Age a while ago and I thought it sound like fun It s part biography , part handy hints guide of Marjorie Bligh who lives in Devonport Tasmania It sounds like it is a wonderful story about the life of an ordinary person as I agree with the idea that we all have a story to tell going to get started tonight.

    This book was not what I thought it was and I am not sure why I continued reading it, because I didn t know who this person is Also, she didn t really have much of an interesting life It was an easy and quick read, though.
