Here we go. The idea of creating a group that promotes the culture of reading in PNG (read Wayne's article at pngbool.blogspot.com) started as a very tiny seed of thought. With every nourishment effort from the dedicated committee members headed by our very own Wayne Ganjiki and with technical assistance from Bea Amaya, the almost microscopic in size idea grew to what you can see today.
2011 has come to an end. Great! Another new year! I'm pretty sure there are lessons to be learnt from this year. Good lessons and bad lessons. But one thing for sure is that we have started a drive that will align us to achieve the visions of PNG envisaged in PNG Vision 2050.
I commend all members for the active participation in the discussions, reviews, critiques and updates on the latest happenings in PNG. Our blog is up and running and is maintained by Wayne. Let's thank Bea again for the creative conscious she posses to again upgrade our website. Very prolific discussions are underway to do even bigger things for PNGBookClub in years to come. We will keep all members informed when the time is right.
The foresightedness and determination shown by each committee members is reflected by the good result we have seen this year. Again Wayne has done us proud by publishing our story in Post Courier. You are a mighty warrior Wayne.
After all that has been said, one thing we all should do is to thank those who actually wrote the books that we read and that is the reason why this group was formed. Thanks to the authors of all books we read.
To end, I kindly ask you to give a tap to yourself on your shoulder and tell yourself, "You love you". You were the one that made everything happened. So thank yourself. I will do the same.
