My Favourite 5 of 2018

I’m not a prolific reader. In fact most years I’m lucky if I make it through 2 books a month. But in 2018 I set myself the goal of reading more books, even if that meant listening to half of them. So as the year’s end draws near I have read 38 books! This might … Read more

After my last fairly downbeat blog I thought I’d lift the spirits of us all by announcing a number of the books I’ll be reading in 2017. I assume you all care what I read and my rambling musings regarding those books because I have a giant ego and assume everyone wants to know all … Read more
