As my monthly delivery of O’Brians is about to run out, I have given my TBR list to Blackwells, so that they can send me one book a month forever. Or, until roughly the end of 2016. This means that I can now get on with all the fun of creating a new list, sans guilt at ignoring the stuff that had already been on the list for literally years. It also means I get a surprise in the post every month. And, in an effort to read more non-fiction, I gave Euan at Blackwells carte blanche to chuck in a non-fiction title if he thinks I really have to read it. This will, of course, supplement, not replace the monthly book off my list. I so totally win.
Meanwhile, my new, non-Blackwells TBR list is building, slowly…
- Winter – Christopher Nicholson. Although I’m unsure about this one after a couple of dodgy reviews.
