Wow, nice job!

I have so many books sitting around that I'm planning on reading. Maybe I can actually start tonight!

Usually I read science fiction, graphic novels or mysteries but as I am now stuck in Egypt I tend to read the really trashy "holiday paperbacks" that people bring with them when they come out here on holiday. I have never been this miserable reading books before....

I actually don't really read books. I too often end up falling asleep. I'm into listening to audio books while I'm driving. My all-time favorite so far is the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy by Stieg Larsson.

I never knew fortnums had a book. However living only an hour out of London I do stock up on their afternoon tea when I visit, and I'm a sucker for their English creams- especially the violet! I was happy to see Norwegian wood on your list- did you watch the film too? I read the book a year or two ago, and managed to catch the film over here this year too said...

Happy New Year 2012
