Wrap-Up August 2020

I think this has to be my most social month in … forever! I also did get quite a lot of reading done – so much so that I don’t even know how I did it! However, this was the first (and hopefully only) month I exclusively read books for work! However, I managed what seemed impossible …

Wrap-Up January 2020

I just realised that’s pretty much me – only I write monthly posts …

Newbies October 2013 + Bookfair Haul

Ahem, this is even worse than last month. First, we have the non-bookfair newbies (the bookfair newbies are below) …

Newbies March 2013

So much for sticking to the book-buying ban from the TBR-Reduction-Extreme challenge. But hey, you haven’t seen what I’ll get in April. This is next to nothing compared to my Easter haul!
