Changing fashion gears

Dr. Ruth Quibell (my multi-talented other half) has a column in today's Age, 'Maybe it's time for a change of gear in fashion's fast lane'.

She's discussing the rise of 'fast fashion', and the need to replace frantic consumerism with slow style.

Thanks, Linden. Usually something of 'great personal value' is not a distraction. Although it might still be of less value than other things in life, e.g. family, career, health.

If my book genuinely is a distraction, and can't be read differently, don't read it. Give it up, give it away, or leave it for another day.
