Well. What a week. I started coming down with a bug on Sunday night and was ill all week. I can’t remember the last time that I felt so ill. And I was thanking my lucky stars that I had last week’s posts already written I can tell you. Yuck. Anyway, once I had started to get my concentration back, I stuck to mostly children’s books and mysteries because that was all my brain could handle. It was only on Friday night that I started to venture into anything else. Not. Fun. At. All. Four of the books on this list were finished at the weekend once I was up and about a bit more – which just tells you how ill I was earlier in the week – despite being stuck at home with nothing to do and nowhere to go I wasn’t reading anything!

Of course the other side of being ill, is that I didn’t buy anything either. So that’s a bright side I suppose!
