Preface

I have always enjoyed reading.  I read a fair amount, but I used to read a lot more. In the 1980s I kept a notebook in which I listed all the books I read: usually 50 or 60 a year.  I have stopped doing that, so I am not sure how many books I get through nowadays.  I am guessing maybe 20 a year.

As well as reading books, including on my kindle,  I listen to audiobooks, particularly on longer car journeys. So in 2019 I decided to restart that notebook. This blog is it.

Update – note on the marking scheme.  The marks I give out of 10 are personal to me. They reflect my tastes. I know that others will disagree: please feel free to do so.
