The 75 Book Challenge 2013 – Final Post

September Reading Summary


September has been a busy month, what with Caius being away working and sailing and Tori starting school (and Arthur starting pre-school) so it is a small miracle I have read anything at all!

June Book Review


I only picked three books to read this month and left the rest open to inspiration. I read one of them. Oops. I did, however, read other stuff. (By ‘other stuff’ I basically mean Kindle’s free romance/erotica section because it was easy to read and quick to digest. And hilariously bad most of the time.)…… Continue reading June Book Review
