My reading year 2018

I did this a few years ago and it kept me going, so I’m rolling it out again. We’re on 28 December when I first created this page, I’m currently reading Running Like a Girl and The Enchanted Castle. The first to get me back in the swing of running again and the latter because it’s Christmas and boy did I need some down-time reading.

I’m hoping for 52+ books this coming year, at least one a week. Care to join me? (This would help if WordPress hadn’t lost some of my books in a random edit, going back over the page history, I found some, but not all, that I’d added here.)
