Apr 2013 TBROh dear, if you look at how my TBR looked last month, I appear to have been rather wicked … And, indeed, my new Book Confessions category does tell a rather sorry tale, doesn’t it. But it’s only books, and it’s not as big as it has been! Plus at least four of the new books are quite substantial hardbacks, so a lot of space is taken up by each book. Hm, OK, I give up.

Talking of new categories, I’ve now got a Business Book Reviews strand, too. If you’ve published a business book that you’d like me to review, please get in touch (leave me a message here or via my Contact page)

Apr 2013 coming upAnyway, what’s coming up?Well, this is the front of my TBR shelf – there are 16 books on there, which is perhaps optimistic, but there are some short ones, plus I have a couple of train trips coming up which always help with the reading … Anything on there take your fancy? I see I’m well into September 2012 now, which is gratifying, although I had a bumper acquisition month that month, with gifts, a dip into The Works and the Iris Murdoch conference.

Apr 2013 next readComing up first is the April Barbara Pym. I do love this cover – so reminiscent of places I’ve worked – and I bought this book in 1994 so another old favourite. By the time this is published, I will have started reading it, I’m sure!

What are you planning to read in April?
