I'm sitting at Sweethearts Cafe in Eudlo enjoying my excellent latte and the groovy atmos, chatting about life with the lovely Helena, and surfing the net.... multitasking at its best!!  With a little 'kid free' time on my hands I thought I'd tell you about something I've found that I know you will LOVE!

As students, we are required to read, read and read some more!  The trouble is, it's mostly text books, journal articles and essays and I don't know about you, but I get a bit over reading the same ole stuff over and over.

What's my point... reading is FUN!  OMG who would have thought it!!! ;)  It opens up worlds that we can only dream of, and then some!  Even when you're studying and think you dont have time, I highly recommend having a few 'non-text' books lying around to break your mind set out of the tunnel vision of a degree.  You never know, that dodgey romance book might just give you a shift in perspective and bring a new perspective to your essay on the "mating rituals and psycho-social habits of pigmies"!!

Although time is short and there is so much to cram into a 'reading session' I wanted to tell you about this awesome site I've been frequenting since its discovery!  Head Space will eventually be available from this awesome place, but these things take time!

The site is called THE BOOK DEPOSITORY . They're a UK based online book store selling EVERYTHING you can think of!  I've even looked up my nursing textbooks there and have found them way cheaper than anywhere else.  They sell all manner of awesome titles at huge discounts, including texts and research books if you feel the need to justify why you're looking for books online instead of your nose 'in the books'!  So what?  There are plenty of online book stores around, right.  Well, yes, but how many of them delivery your order TOTALLY FREE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD!!!

Thats right, you heard me, FREE GLOBAL DELIVERY!   I totally sound like an advert dont I?!!   That's because I am seriously excited!   Mostly because so far I have already purchased 5 different titles from The Book Depository and they've arrived to my great delight intact and delivery charge free as promised.

I'm currently awaiting an order including The Tipping Point by Malcom Gladwell, Intimate Communion by Dave Deida,  The Passion Test - The Effortless Path to Discovering Your Destiny (Paperback) by Janet Bray Attwood... I can't wait!  Yes, sorry to tell you I am one of those annoying types who has 5 or 6 books on the go at the same time.  One or two of them are text books, but sometimes I just cant bring myself to read them, so I pull out a 'light read' or perhaps something inspiring to get me motivated.  There's also a couple of sci fi, fantasy novels floating around when I need to escape from all that rampant reality that gets us stressed out from time to time.  What's on your bedside table?

Couldn't avoid a gratuitous plug for my own book!  ;)

Make time in your study schedule to ENJOY READING!  It will actually save you from 'textbook burnout' , give you that little piece of escapism you've been craving since you began to study and may just snap you out of a blinkered head space and into a creative place which is essential for study success!

WARNING...WARNING... WARNING... allocate your bucks before you browse... this online book thingie can be not just a little addictive!

Happy reading! :)
