Another week and I haven’t scheduled a post, so you have put up with a pointless off the cuff one. Although there is no guarantee the schedule ones aren’t pointless as well. Anyway, some exciting news from me just finished reading my current book, Erased Boy, I would recommend it, especially if like me you […]Read more "It’s the best time of the year again"
A list of books I’ve read so far this year and what I thought of them.Read more "Books that I’ve read"
Well this is not a problem for everyone, but I tend to read a lot of blogs that carry reviews of books. These blogs make the books sound so good I must buy them. I used to make a to read list, but I’ve given up on that as the list is too big. I […]Read more "The problem with following blogs."
I have recently realised I am not reading enough. Normally I read loads of books a year. I had started my usual annual re-read of the Harry Potter Books at the start of the summer and by now I would be finished however I am on book six.

People who have are perfectly entitled too and no one forces any one to contribute this is just my personal opinion on it. Publishing a book is a commercial exercise most do it […]Read more "Crowdfunding a book"

(Which seems to have mysteriously disappeared this morning.) While writing this I have found a new feature called discover. The point […]Read more "How to stay on top of reading blogs"
The other day I had a very strange experience. Like most of you I read a lot; I read great books, good books, mediocre books. I even read down right awful books. I often read a book more than once, I have lost count how many times I have re-read Harry Potter. What I never […]Read more "Giving up on a book"
