Today I spent some time adding to my Shelfari http://www.shelfari.com/ bookshelf.
I have several books to read during the holidays.
Youngest son gave me Letters and numbers Word and number puzzles from the SBS TV show for Christmas; as we have been enjoying playing along with the TV show.
Bill Zimmerman of http://www.makebeliefscomix.com and http://www.billztreasurechest.com sent me a copy of his new book Your life in comics : 100 things for guys to write and draw http://www.billztreasurechest.com/life_in_comics.html
The book features cartooning exercises and prompts that get boys thinking and writing about important subjects in their lives, including family, friends, school, health, and the future. Web extensions point the way to additional fun and interactive resources online. You can also download some of the pages from the book.
Bill invites you to blog and comment with him and offers writers’ prompts on his blog at http://www.billztreasurechest.com/blog/
I have two books on the I Plan to Read section of my Shelfari shelf. I do not have a copy of either of these books yet but am looking forward to reading them.

It can be purchased online at http://www.qbd.com.au/product/9781593634896-Twice-exceptional_Gifted_Children_by_Trail_Beverly_A_.htm and I think it may be available in Australia from Borders or Dymocks. I will search for it soon.
