The Week In Books: January 22 – January 28

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!
