Today is Tuesday, 9th December which means we are more than a third of the way through the Bookvent Calendar.

Day 9

We opened the window for Day 9 to find a nice adult book instead of all of the children’s books and resources we’ve had so far.

An Affair Before Christmas


An Affair Before Christmas by Eloisa James. We think this is a wonderful addition to the Bookvent Calendar since we think there are a lot of people who would like a little romance over Christmas.

And behind the book is the iconic C.Y. O’Connor statue. A bronze statue of O’Connor by Pietro Porcelli stands in front of the Fremantle Port Authority buildings, commemorating O’Connor’s achievements.

Tomorrow is day ten…which probably won’t involve ten lords-a-leaping but should have a book and a new picture from the last 35-years of Cockburn.
