Whitefriars National Year of Reading
Mr Scott Firmin
- What are you reading and why?
I read the Herald Sun newspaper daily, it is a way to pass time and relax whilst on my coffee and lunch breaks. I’m not really into news and the Herald Sun is more like a magazine rather than a newspaper. I also read recipe books. The most common one is a microwave preserve book. I’m keen on making my own jams and preserves at the moment which are sold to raise funds for the environment group.
- What’s it about?
The newspaper is daily news gossip and light entertainment. The cookbook… well the title speaks for itself.
- Would you recommend it to others?
Sure if you’re interested in making your own preserves, go for it, they are really simple recipes and easy to do.
- What are some of your favourite books/authors?
When I was younger I really got into Victor Kelleher. I also think I still have my original collection of Paul Jennings books. LOL, I even got two of them signed by Paul himself.
- Do you have a favourite recipe or gardening tip that you can share?
No I keep all my tips a secret, if I share them then I put myself out of a job, LOL, it’s all about supply and demand you know!
- Where’s the strangest place or the best place you can remember reading a book?
Nothing strange about it, but I often take a good reference book out into the college bushland and ID some of the great natives growing here at the college.
Thanks for sharing Mr Firmin.
