Books 2019
So the challenge was a book a week and despite a flying start reality kicked in (and the fact that I started studying) and I slowed down towards the end of the year. I nearly reached the 40 mark and hopefully 2020 will see that level being reached. This year was a good mix of history, sport, punk rock, politics and fiction. Just like any good nights conversation 🙂
