17 down last year. I've really got to stop persisting with books that don't 'grab' me, it takes so long to finish them because I can only obligation read so many pages before I get bored or distracted by something shiny. I'm talking to you "The Heist".

I want to get my hands on a lot more Ross Macdonald and more Lauren Beukes and I see that a sequel to Girt was released in time for christmas and (harrumpf) no-one bought it for me.

I did get the sequel to Wolf Hall though, Bringing out the Bodies. I love that it's so thick means I don't have to do that thing where you read slower on purpose so you can spend more time there.
