In the end, I got to the actually painful number 49. 49, I tell you. These were them.
This year, I have set the same challenge for myself. But I’m going to be slightly more systematic in posting my progress of reading through the stacks. The ones in the bedroom, in my office, sometimes on the shelves and even in the fridge.
I’m going to commit to monthly round-up posts and hope to get a rounder number in December.
Here’s January’s tally:
New Finnish Grammar – A must for anyone interested in WWII, memory/nostalgia, and the concept of home.
The Paris Wife – Made me want to read Hemingway. The real one, not my computer. Though I could stand to read more on here, too.
Bossypants – On Goodreads, I put this on my I Caved and also my Laughed Out Loud shelves. Because I did. Both. And I quoted bits to Sarge, so now the book is on his side of the bed. Funny stuff and good advice. Thank you, Tina Fey.
I recently moved from Edinburgh to Skye, and not so recently from other places. I write, I read and I live quite happily with my husband, our daughter, lots of books, a few fish, and computers called Hemingway, Truman, and Frank. I’m 36, and I happen to be a wheelchair-user. I've been blogging at Gin & Lemonade since 2010.
