I own a huge number of books so many I have never bothered counting them. I have been suffering from Stuff Overload since having children, and have been releasing my books into the wild for the past two or three years without realising that I could have been having much more fun doing it!
After a brisk start I haven't done so much Book Crossing lately. I find it too distracting/ nerve-wracking. I still enjoy perusing the website though and writing about books read.
In the Red Kitchen by Michele Roberts
The Half-blood Prince (read aloud to my children, what a pleasure that has been!)
To Read next?
Some Muriel Spark novels
I have read 29 books since 1st Jan, thus more or less keeping up with my once book per week habit!!
