Horses & castles go hand in hand.. like chalk & cheese!  
Im not sure if castles & horses go hand in hand but it did sound good as a subject title. Anyway this isnt a medieval like story of some kind, but of two seperate topics ; Castle (t.v. show ) which we all ♥ and horses. :P

I will begin with castle since well its what im more concerned about i suppose & will make the many castle fans quite happy.
During my random web searches on castle to see what was in store for season 3 which seems like a great one, which i cant wait for i stumbled along the fact that ABC a t.v. coorperation have decided  created a book  (two books) that were mentioned in the series ie. the Nikki heat novels. When reading this i couldnt believe my eyes.. but in fact its true. Being such a long time lover of this show from its roots, i was so ashamed of myself & the fact that i didnt know this..
What i did want to know is if anyone has read these books yet & if it was worth it to get for a present. I cant seem to find it anywhere in Aus libraries *shame on Australia* but i wanted to find out if anyone has read or bought it yet.!! Before I do get anyones hopes up it is only 10 chapters.. and it isnt really his story. more a dedication i suppose, but i did want to know what everyone did think about it still. All opinions welcome!

& now onto the horses.
So for those who didnt know/ dont know tommorow being the first tues in November we have the annual Melbourne cup. It is 'SUPPOSED' to be the RACE THAT STOPS THE NATION!!
However, for the first year in my life its not going to be. This year i will be doing my second exam (Biostatistics & epidemiology) which will runn through the time that the race occurs. I guess what doesnt make this better is the fact that the exams are run in huge hall areas at another racecourse where racing events do occur each year in the spring. Ah i shoudnt complain though, but I do wish it was like Year 12 exams when they  did care about you & didnt make exams on that day. I guess I have to learn that life isnt always going to be the way you want it.. According to my mum.. there could be many more to come!. Why should I be even complaining.. its not like its just me, there are others doing it too. Guess I shouldnt be complaining like I am!.  There is always firsts for everything... like this & when i make my first banner/icon!.

I havent made a banner/icon before in my life *probably its quite sad too*  probably confounded by the fact that i dont have photoshop yet!! i will be though, sometime next year & was hoping that someone would lead me somewhere to really basic creation of banners & icons (nothing with selective colouring etc). Who knows.. maybe i will be creating my own work in the not so distant future.. & you will be seeing them everywhere!!

awwww...you mentioning the Melbourne Cup just brought back so many memories. I've been in Sydney on that day 2007 and still remember what a huge deal it was for everyone there. Sorry you miss it this year. I think I could only compare it with a Soccer World Championship game of the german team to name one event that has a similar meaning here ^^. We even started a field trip later so everyone could see it.

I've heard that there are Nikki Heat books, but I haven't read them.

You should come back soon! Australians are always obsessed about our sports incl. the Soccer World cup that happened to be near exams in Year 12. :P

As for the books, I was looking for a community that would allow me to post a question just asking this, but i couldnt seem to find anyway. Would you happen to know of any by chance or maybe a post that has been already published?
Any help is always appreciated.. :)

I'd so love to. But the flight is kinda expensive :(

Maybe you could post something about the books at castlebeckett. I didn't see a tagged entry there about the books. But the german amazon comments were pretty good. I might get the first one as it's only 5,50 Euro.

Do you let me know what you think when you get round to reading it! Would love to hear your thoughts. I will post onto their site, once they have approved me :)

thanks :P
