The book log

Hanging books

Right, it’s a bit late in the day but I’ve decided to add a new page. This is just going to be a list of the books I’ve read (and finished) over the course of maintaining this blog. It’s for myself as much as anyone else, and at the moment – well, it’ll be empty. I’m not going to go back and list everything I’ve ever read – that’d just be impossible. And I’m just going to keep it chronological. No point overanalysing it. Fiction and non-fiction – I’m just going to shove it all in here as if in a plague-pit of unwanted, unloved words…

I’m also a subscriber of BBC History magazine (a present from my parents), Writing magazine (a present from my wife) and Current Archaeology (a present to myself).

Title, author, publication date (of the edition read, not necessarily when it was first published), date finished. Books I’ve read for a second (or subsequent) time are marked with an asterisk. All happy?
