Another month of reading has passed, so too, has another year. First up, let's look at December. I read six books in December, unsurprising that the total is low, December is a notoriously busy month for everyone. Two of my December reads were real chunksters though, so overall, I didn't do too badly and it … Continue reading A Month of Reading: December

I've read 52 books for my Australian Women Writers Challenge so far this year, 15 since my last #aww2018 checkpoint post at the end of April.
