The Week In Books: July 16 – July 22

Not actually a bad week’s work in reading to be honest – I would be pleased with myself except that the Long Running list is getting a little bit too long and feels sort of out of control.  That’s the next target: to sort that out a bit!

The Week In Books: July 2 – July 8

In case you can’t tell from the length of the list, I was on holiday last week!  And although we did a bit more sightseeing than usual for a beach holiday which meant a bit less reading time, I still managed a fairly good total.  All in all it was a marvellous holiday – I thoroughly recommend Croatia, especially while they’re on a World Cup run! And if you missed it you’ve already read about one of my books I read last week coz in a bit of a cheaty move, I made The Kiss Quotient last week’s BotW.  All that heat clearly went to my head…

This is more like it! A couple of late shifts last week and the train journeys mean the reading list is looking pretty normal.  In case you missed it, there was a bonus post last week – check out my Books to read while the World Cup is on and if you’re about to go on holiday, don’t forget my Beach reading picks either.

The Week In Books: June 4 – June 10

Ummmm.  Yeah.  So I thought I didn’t read much last week – and then this week I read even less.  Why?  Well it was a super busy week at work – and then I spent the weekend back at my old Uni celebrating 50 years of the student radio station that I spent so many hours* in over the course of my degree.  And just like back in my undergrad days – I spent so much time with my student radio friends that I didn’t really do anything else.  And you know what?  I’m not even sorry.  There’ll be other weeks and more time to read – but the chance to spend time with people you haven’t seen in a decade doesn’t come around every day.  In fact, this was the biggest gathering of  us all since a bunch of them graduated at the end of my second year, right before I went off to spend my year in France.  And it was amazing.

One book bought – and I was so busy catching up with my friends that I didn’t go into even one of the Oxfam bookshops in York, let alone both of them, so no books bought!

*Probably more hours than I spent on my actual degree if I’m honest.  But hey, I honestly believe that I wouldn’t be have the career I have in my day job without all those hours.
