I kind of lost track of the number of books I read last year but I think it was around 40. I've decided this year to keep a rolling blog post going with all the books listed as I got bored of scrabbling around trying to find titles and counts last year.
Books for me are the same as stitching and quilting when it comes to stash - I estimate I have around 200 piled up in my wardrobe waiting to be read so I am determined to be good and reduce that number rather than buy more. I think I'll give myself a limit of 1 new book for every 25 I read as I'm not sure I can cope without buying any books at all but in the spirit of WIPocalypse I need to reduce the piles.
So my first finish of the year was last night and it was The Magic of Christmas by Trisha Ashley. It was a good read, a nice light chic lit type of book perfect for the season and very charming and moreish. I'm contemplating reading her 'Twelve Days of Christmas' next as I'm not quite devoid of the Christmas spirit yet but that may change after the postman has been today as I'm waiting for my next Aunt Dimity book to arrive. I'm definitely addicted to these stories and have three in my 'to read' pile but the one I'm waiting for preceeds them in chronological order and I'm way too OCD to read out of order LOL.
