I feel as if I have not been to the library forever, so today on this splendid sunny morning my family and I departed for the town library and withdrew a vast multitude of books. I took out quite a lot more than I expected (almost exceeding the limit), and I feared the carrier bag would break on the journey outside, but judgement aside I’m excited to get stuck into reading some print-copy books!


Here is my immediate reading list, some of which are on the The Ultimate Reading Challenge List (which are in bold below). I’ll edit as I go along when I have read the books here, and which rating I gave each book!
