Moment of fame!
“I started writing books, specifically, because I wanted to share information and help people.”

Welcome to another Small Business Update, oh, and it’s with me! I always take the quieter slots around Christmas and New Year slot for myself, because it doesn’t seem fair to leave someone else languishing here, and I find it an interesting exercise in…

Well, it’s my last review of the year, as the two books I’m reading won’t get finished today. I’ll be sharing my highlights of the year tomorrow, as I never like to decide on them until the year is over, just in case. This review is part of my new reading…

Well, an interesting pairing tonight as I continue to whizz through my TBR and post as many of the reviews as I can in the correct month. We have one book about confirmed spinsters who are happy with that state, and one about marriage and the un/happy…

Two reviews of books by men (again) – it feels like I read these ages ago now, although I actually finished the Kelman on Christmas Day (as I received it on Christmas Day, 2014, this felt nice and neat). I have had an unpleasant cold/cough for a week or…

Two books by … men. And that’s it, really – they don’t go together except, I suppose, for being read out of the main TBR sequence. Will that do? One is the final book in a series I’ve been reading and enjoying all year, the other is a novelisation of a…

I had my cholesterol checked just before the Christmas holidays – I have a full set of blood work done every year because of some other medication I’m on, and I ask them to take my cholesterol at the same time, and (very importantly, as we’ll see) break…

As we all probably know by now, I don’t like to post my Best Of until the first day of the New Year, just in case I read THE BEST BOOK EVER as the last book of the year. I almost did this year, too. So here’s my pic of the year’s books, but some […]

Hello there! I’m doing some end-of-year housekeeping, I’d love to know what people think of the on-going Libro blog. I’ve got 1,000,000 hits and counting this year, so I know people are reading, but it’s always good to check that I’m providing what you…

More reviews from my somewhat frantic Christmas reading – but I’m not sure I’ve made enough room on the TBR shelf yet, especially because I seem to have fallen into a Waterstones clutching some book tokens today … more of that later. But for now, two…

I don’t THINK any more books are now due … so here’s the rather wonderful pile that ensued when I gathered up all of the books I have received for Christmas from my lovely friends (of course to be added to the ones I opened at BookCrossing Secret Santa…
