    Best way for me to devour these books uninterupted would be to fake my own disappearance … with said books, then be found stumbling around 2 weeks later claiming amnesia … ahhhh, the bliss!

  2. Nicole Harris says:

    The only way for me to be able to devour these books uninterrupted would be to fake my own disappearance, then reappear 2 weeks later feigning amnesia! 

  3. Amanda Barrett says:

    I would organise an emergency bookish retreat weekend with my book club girlies, where we could share the books and discuss. It would have to be a top secret location so we could enjoy uninterrupted reading time, bliss :-)

  4. Jo says:

    I’m thinking faking an illness is the way to go. One that requires me to lie in bed undisturbed except for the delivery of cups of tea. :-)

  5. Jenny says:

    Sudden onset vertigo that requires a week prone in bed in absolute isolation. Or a sudden car breakdown outside a luxury hotel when the books just happen to be with me. Note the sudden theme here…perhaps an emergency “work” trip interstate.  The possibilities are endless.

  6. Angela says:

    well seeing as the back ground on the cover to outback blaze is a photo I took and then gave Racheal Johns primission to use it on her cover I would start with that book, then at night once all the children are tucked up in bed I would make a hot chocolate get a nice snuggly blanket and read away in piece and quite! Then during the day I would put on my rose coloured glasses and pretend I can’t see the moutain of washing that needs folding and ironing and the crumbs on the floors and sit with my HOT cup of coffee and continue to read my way through all of these wonderful books.

  7. Tanya says:

    Hmmm, being a stay at home mum makes this difficult, as I can’t exactly take a sickie or fake an emergency. Maybe it would be a good excuse to try being away from my 7 month old for the first time and let a grandmother baby sit? Oh, I know! We can use them as home reader practice for the school aged kids? I’m sure these books would *totally* be okay for a 5 and 7 year old to use when learning to read. ;)

  8. Mary Preston says:

    I’d send the family away on a surprise getaway. The Gold Coast theme parks would be the lure. Alas, I would have a big work **thing** (vague is good) that weekend, but: “Hey guys, you go & enjoy, don’t worry about me slaving away!!!!” A guilt trip in every sense. 

  9. Karen Howson says:

    I will be having a short break from Easter to Anzac day, during which I plan to shut myself off from the rest of the world and enjoy some alone time curled up on my lounge. What better company than a good romance!

  10. Chris Robinson says:

    These books look amazing. If I win I would give them all to my 90 year old mum to devour. I can see her sitting in her recliner, cup of tea and chocolate beside her, curled up and comfy and reading all day every day until they were all read .  Reading gives her so much pleasure. Of course once she was finished then it would be my turn to escape reality and enjoy them too.

  11. First I’ll take the kids to school, then when I get home I’ll kick off my shoes and curl up on the lounge and get lost in the book.  Just before it’s time to pick the kids up and the hubby gets home, I’ll do a mad dash around the house quickly tidying so it looks like I’ve done the house work that day. Only you and I will know the truth ;) 

  12. Dale says:

    Close front door. Open book. Walk. Read. Sit on bus. Read. Exit bus. Walk. Read. Don’t walk. Read. Walk again. Read. Enter building. Read. Smile at security. Read. Catch lift. Read. Arrive at office. Close book. Work. Leave. Open book. Read. Repeat.

  13. Susan Whelan says:

    I would enjoy the first four books curled up on the lounge with a cup of tea and some caramel slice after the kids go to bed. Because I have already read (and loved) Graeme Simsion’s The Rosie Project (can’t wait for the release of the sequel!), I would enjoy giving it away to a friend so that I can share around the bookish pleasure.
