  1. You read through an entire library there - I am impressed and wonder when you had time to eat, sleep or do anything else!!

  2. When I look at a list like that, I immediately try to find connexions with my own read books. I'm afraid there are few coincidences. I've read Boy, the trilogy of Stieg Larsson (I understand they have issued a fourth book) and a couple of David Lodge (The British Museum is falling down and Small world). But any of them I've read during 2019.

    Nice to find people who reads even more than me! :D

  3. I agree with Librarian, when do you have time for anything else? I am greatly impressed, and inspired to keep a list this year; starting with: Larry McMurtry's Dead Man's Walk which is the beginning of a re-read of his Lonesome Dove series.

  4. Wow, that's a lot... You must be fast reader!!!

  5. Aaah I remember the days when I read books intended for adults... long gone for now I suspect. Still, I'm learning plenty, even from the ones aimed at 3 year olds!

  6. Whoa, that is a lot of books! And they all look so good! So many books, too little time!

  7. I am beyond impressed with the number of books you read last year! And it's a great list for more good books for me to read. :) Happy New Year!!
