Books that left an impression in 2020

2020 seems to be the year that never ends – but don’t wish it away just yet, because today is my birthday! This year, instead of choosing ‘top’ books I’m making a list of books that I read that left a lasting impression. Given that I read 20+ books more than 2019, that’s not an... Continue Reading →

Top Reads for 2019

I simply cannot list my best reads for 2019 until the end of the year. What if I finish a really great book on December 29? (Plus, today is my birthday so I can do anything I want). Traditionally, I try to cull my list to ten but then I remembered that this is my... Continue Reading →

Memorable reads of 2018

It's also my birthday today so I can do whatever I want. Thank... Continue Reading →

2011 – Reading and reading!

I'm a little bit late in writing up my summary of 2011 – between Christmas, my birthday and then working on New Year's Day (probably one of the busiest shifts ever), I've been tired. Pleasingly, when I looked back at my reading in 2011, I think I've done quite well. I read 88 books in... Continue Reading →

All over August

Even though I managed to read eight books in August, I think I spent nearly as much time reading as I did buying books. (More to come in September) I am still behind in reviews; sitting at a desk job (only temporary) in front of a computer all day keeps me away from the computer at night! I... Continue Reading →
