  • Reading List 2011

    I thought it’d be worth explaining the slew of book reviews that have been on the blog recently.

    I like to read.

    I read a LOT.

    Whether its a book, a blog, a magazine I’ve always got something on the go.

    My reading habits when it comes to books is a little weird though. Sometimes I’ll read three or four books in a short space of time and then stop for a couple of months then do the same thing again.

    I’m always adding to my book collection and I’ve got lots of books I’ve never read so I wanted to get out of the up/down cycle and be a bit more consistent.

    It’s been mostly fiction so far purely because those are the books I’ve got at the moment but I imagine there will be some non-fiction along the way.

    I’d also like to know how many books I do actually can i buy ativan over the counter read because I really don’t know.

    I also wanted to help keep me in the blogging habit by writing a book review for each one.

    Last year my blogging pattern was even worse than my book reading pattern and it’s something I intend to change this year and it’s worked so far to a degree. While I’m not posting on a daily basis just the act of writing a post is helping keep me engaged with the blog.

    I’ve added a page with a list of everything I’ve read this year via a GoodReads widget though it’s a little temperamental and doesn’t seem to show everything until I give it a bit of a kick so I’ll need to keep an eye on that I think.

    I have some very specific tastes in fiction but if anyone has any suggestions of what to read next they are more than welcome.
