Authors I love, books, stats, The pile, week in books

The Week in Books: September 20 – September 26

So, for the first time in 18 months we’ve been abroad on holiday! And it was lovely.  A week in Mallorca, enjoying some sun and relaxing and just generally not being in our house. And it meant plenty of time for reading. And no, this list isn’t quite as long as some holiday reading lists that I have previously had, but I had to wrestle the kindle off Him Indoors (who is reading some of the Amelia Peabody novels that we can’t get on audiobook in the UK) and that meant a bit of stopping and starting because the Kindle didn’t like the hotel wifi and so I couldn’t sync it to the iPad. First world problems… And I also read quite a bit of non fiction and that takes me longer than fiction does. There are a few on here that you’ll be hearing about – probably in the end of month mini reviews at the end of next week, but I reserve the right to change my mind and do a separate post after all!

Bonus photo: So because we’ve been on holiday, it had to be a holiday picture this week. Rather than a boring picture of me, or of the beach and the sea, I’m going for this picture of the path leading down to a particularly nice, quite remote and unspoilt beach on the island that we had a nice time at. I read a couple of hundred pages of Antony Horowitz on this particular beach, but it was just generally lovely to be away.
