I don't usually have a normal reading month in December. For obvious reasons it tends to get a bit busy and I end up reading just 2 or 3 books. But this December I've done a little better with a grand total of 5. And these are they:
63. Against a Dark Sky - Katherine Pathak
64. A Song of Shadows - John Connolly
65. As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust - Alan Bradley
66. The Z Murders - J. Jefferson Farjeon
67. Patrick Leigh Fermor: An Adventure - Artemis Cooper.
So that's my December in books and also the end of my 2018 reading. 67 books in all (as usual exactly the same number as Nan from Letters From a Hill Farm - hilarious) and a good mix. 33 were books from the library, 34 were my own. 22 were non-fiction, almost a third, so I'm quite happy with that number. All in all it was not a bad reading year for me, very few of the books were disappointing and you can't hope for better than that.
So, onwards and upwards and into 2019. These are the books that came into the house over the Christmas period and will be read this year, mainly gifts but not all.
Highly delighted with all of these!
And these are the books I have lined up for January.
Not sure exactly which will get read or how many but I suspect they'll all be cracking good reads so I'm quite excited at the prospect.
Happy New Year and Happy Reading in 2019.
