It’s Here! The National Year of Reading 2012!

26 Jan

As Friends of The National Year of Reading 2012, I’m delighted to see events being planned and carried out here in Australia to highlight the advancement of literacy.

Where would we be without the written word, and our ability to read and comprehend it?

Certainly, the easy spread of information depends on it: but more….

Isn’t reading one of life’s greatest pleasures? Do we not feel a profound sense of satisfaction at the end of a  well-written, enthralling story? Don’t we feel that we are in contact with the thoughts and ideas of others, yet at the same time being stimulated to form our own opinions, and gain our own insights?

Isn’t there something to be said for reading, where one is actively engaged in the journey of discovery, against sitting back, watching and listening to  television or cinema?

Hail The National Year of Reading 2012!

Happy day! My friends, neighbours, and the community will know: ’60 Questions, Insights and Reminiscences’  has made it!

Our local paper, The St George and Sutherland Shire Leader, has published an article about my books, especially this: the latest!

A look at life through the eyes of a baby boomer, ’60 Questions, Insights and Reminiscences’ strikes me as the easiest of all my books to read. It’s often funny, in an all too true way.

Are you looking for a book, maybe a gift? One that’s entertaining, at once light and yet profound?

Why not take a look at this volume’s Amazon.com web-site?

You never know, you may be amongst the first to discover the virtues of ’60 Questions, Insights and Reminiscences’, and help to put Australia’s Margaret Lynette Sharp on the literary map!

Off to a Good Start!

21 Oct

’60 Questions, Insights and Reminiscences’ has done what none of my previous books has achieved: a ranking in the top 300,000’s of the Amazon best sellers list, within a few days of its appearance!

A complete break with its predecessors, ’60 Questions….’ must surely rate as the easiest of all to read. The setting out, language, and diversity of topics all contribute to its being a real page-turner, especially for those who relish lateral thinking combined with reality.

As always, this volume has been edited by my husband, Ronald Sharp, the builder of the Grand Organ in the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House.

Will its newest readers be so impressed they’ll tell their friends?

As author, I can only hope.
