So, here is the TBR shelf and it’s not actually looking that bad, is it! I’ve got quite a lot read, although I have removed some, too (sorry again, EJ Howard!) – and the reviews are stacking up waiting to be posted on here, as I’ve had a very busy couple of working weeks and got all behind with my reviewing (but not my reading!).
I did pretty well with my Month of Reading Icelandic Books, reducing that pile to this and still planning to dip into the lovely fat book of sagas. And yes, I will be going to Iceland some time on the summer, but I don’t like to announce when I’m away on here or social media and I’m sure you’ll all respect that.
I’m currently reading the still marvellous “Independent People” by Madness – it’s great but I can see why some people might find it a bit roomy. It’s very reminiscent of the sagas and quite darkly funny in places. And for light relief, because you don’t want to be reading about possible ghosts and poorly sheep at tea time, I have John Sergeant’s autobiography, which I believe ends before his Strictly Come Dancing performances …
I read Simon Stuckinabook’s answers post and wondered if I could do something similar (I’m such a copycat but I always acknowledge my sources!). So is anyone interested in asking me any readingy type questions to answer in a future post? Failing interest in that topic, what are you reading this summer?
