What I am reading Wednesday

I thought last post it could do with some tarting up, so I wrote a WordPress plugin that adds a link to the book on OpenLibrary and a cover, if it finds the book. What I Just Finished Reading [book_data title=”Fiddler Fair” author=”Mercedes Lackey”] This is another book of short stories, but a lot thinner…. Continue reading

Because I’ve been tracking how many books I’ve read and acquired this year I can see that I’ve read 19 so far. Which seems like a small number. I’ve just taken it as read that reading a book a week on average is easy. But I got out of the habit of reading (and everything… Continue reading

What I Just Finished Reading The Galaxy and the Ground Within by Becky Chambers. I struggled with this to begin with because it was so slow. I eventually looked at the blurb on the back and realised it was introducing me to all the characters before the plot actually started. Which turned out to only… Continue reading

New Year’s Book Resolution

I read this in separated by a common language and thought it was a great idea. To read more books than I acquire. I have a crate of books to read and a load on my Kobo which is quite disorganised, so I’m not sure how many. I definition haven’t read some I bought in… Continue reading

What I Just Finished Reading Vicki in Venice by Lorna Hill. This arrived back in October and I was saving it, although I didn’t know what for. Then I was ill after my Covid booster, didn’t have the energy for anything that wasn’t easy to read, so I read this. Although I found even this… Continue reading

What I Just Finished Reading Watching Neighbours Twice a Day by Josh Widdecombe. As the book got to the later 90s then I did watch some of the same thing as Josh, so it was a lot more like a nostalgia book. I enjoyed it, but it’s not something I’d ever need to read twice…. Continue reading
