A few years ago I was looking for something to read and stumbled across the BBC’s Book Challenge. Reading through the list I was ashamed to realise I had only read about 10 of them. Since then, I made it my mission to work my way through the list (within reason – I’m never going to read the Complete Works of Shakespeare). The problem was it has just made me want to read more, as often as I can and so I’ve been diverted (albeit willingly) from the list on a regular basis.
I decided to start blogging about the books I’ve read because I feared I was boring all my friends by starting each conversation with “Have you read…?” or “I’ve just finished reading…”
I’m not a writer, my job has nothing really to do with literature, I just like reading.
Often I’ll read a book and just like one aspect of it, perhaps the structure, the setting or the tone etc. I’ve tried, where possible, to include recommendations based on specific elements of each book I’ve read…hope it helps!
