Honestly, Australia isn't that bad. and I honestly mean NEVER have seen a spider except for a daddy long leg. —My reply to ^ Darling, have you ever fought a thousand spiders like I have, like a true Aussie?
╮l╭ Daddy-Long-Legs by Jean Webster was recommended by a penpal friend last year. It was appropriate since it is written in a series of letters from an orphan to her benefactor. This was the first and, for the longest time, only book on my Kindle.
