I haven’t really felt that I’ve been reading much the first month of 2023 but according to GoodReads I’ve clocked in eight books. Five of these were on my Kindle and the other three were a lot of pictures, so I guess it soon mounts up . Heavier on the fiction than non-fiction but that’s just how I’ve been feeling.
Standouts for me were The Quentin Blake Book and B: A Year in Plagues and Pencils and I think I need to revisit both to get more out of them as it was difficult to take them in with just one reading. The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse is a book that I put off reading for far too long and should also spend more time with.
I’ve also been dipping into Doctor Sleep by Stephen King (the “sequel” to The Shining) and An Immense World by Ed Yong. I’m enjoying both of these but just haven’t had a chance to really get into them. I may well get to finish them during February.
