Just in case you didn't read it at the time, I wrote about my New Year's Resolution here.
This week I bought 3 books, and borrowed 2 from the library*.
So far it isn't going too well.
*If anyone is interested, I bought:
- An ex-library copy of Kate Atkinson's "Human Croquet"
- A discounted copy of Matt Haig's "The Radleys," for which I have heard a lot of praise.
- On a whim, a discounted copy of "The Longest Crawl," by Ian Marchant. I had not heard of it before, but it is apparently a comic travelogue of a pub crawl for the length of England (I bought it because it mentioned a few places I know in the blurb).
- "The Coincidence Engine," by Sam Leith. I've wanted to read it since it came out, because I was intrigued by comparisons that were made with the brilliant Douglas Adams
- "The Hypnotist," by Lars Kepler. I've also heard this was good and wanted to read it for a while - I almost bought a signed copy when we went to London last year, but got distracted by some obscure Tennessee Williams that I didn't have.
