Following on from Michael Gove’s recommendations on the ’50 book a year’ thing for school kids I thought that I would keep a tally of what I’m reading/have read this year. Look out for regular updates.

So far this year I have read (in no particular order)

I am just finishing Burton & Swinburne – The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack by Mark Hodder and then it’s on to Nemesis, Max Hastings’ history of WWII in the Pacific.

Never mind reading all these. Perhaps it’s time to start writing one. If only I could find the time.
