Here is another of those lists I indulge in when I’m too busy to write a proper blog post. This blog meme comes via Somewhere Boy and before him Stuck in a Book. The idea is to answer each statement/question with the title of a book you’ve read this year. Because I’ve virtually given up reading books in favour of my Twitter feed, other people’s Facebook status updates, and piano exam regulations, I’ve cheated: some of the books I’ve read, some I haven’t. Please do feel free to submit your own list….
