Whilst I have been struggling on the blogging front over the last couple of months, I was taking some comfort that my reading was still going strongly. May was the month where that no longer the case. So what have I been doing instead of reading and blogging? Playing stupid Facebook games! After months of playing only Songpop, this month I got totally addicted to playing Candy Crush and Farmhouse Heroes Saga. I also played another game for a few weeks but I have since stopped that one!
Now I realise that 14 books for a month is a pretty respectable total, but over the last 6 months or so I have been reading more than 20 a month so this is quite a significant reduction for me.
Here's what I read:
