Reading stuff

20 Feb

So, it’s been nearly a year since I started recording every book I’ve read – I’ve been having a bit of a resurgence in recent weeks as I started to get used to my job. It turns out the reading list gets ridiculously long tacked on at the end of posts so I’m going to see about connecting a goodreads account up with the ole blog by the 12th of March. I’m still hoping to reach 100 by then!

I’m also going to announce my book of the year, which will be an exciting event for the author involved. Everybody likes to win an award they’ve never heard of with no prize from a person they’ve never heard of. Awards night is extra glamorous too. It’s basically me sat at home on my laptop wearing a onesie.
