In the front row, an older lady was reading Summer's End by Danielle Steele.
That same woman attends the event every year and is known to bring along the SMH to read. Seems she's realised her choice had come down to two mostly-fictional items of content and chose to join the growing cohort of ex-readers. Sorry you had to find out this way.
On a positive note, this woman is clearly a candidate for one of the SMH's super duper 80 per cent off subscription deals.
You should go and personally save this reader so that you get a good mention from management at the upcoming staff retrenchment function.
