    Month in Numbers: February and March

    I hadn’t meant to leave such a long time between posts but I’ve been through a crazily busy period at work and I haven’t really had any time to read, never mind blog about reading. We’ve just got back from…

    October Wrap-up

    I feel as though October was a really good month for reading.  I’ve rolled into November really excited about the books that I’m reading and about the books that I have on ‘Read Sooner Rather Than Later’ pile, which has…

    August/September Wrap-Up

    August and September have both been busy for various reasons and neither allowed me particularly intensive periods of reading.  Around my birthday in August, we were away in Florence for a wedding planning trip and then we were seeing a…
