Lol! I just worked out, that's got to be an average of two books a week or something, isn't it? Hows it going? :-)

I took a train journey over to Birmingham today and started reading my first book of 2017 while I was travelling. Somewhat unexpectedly, the first book I really fancied out of my to-read pile was a non-fiction about ancient Rome (as opposed to the epic stack of books about ancient Greece which is theoretically supposed to be my favourite of the two!).

Heh, I've never actually worked it out, don't want to panic myself! I'm up to 8 as of today :D

I do that a lot, which is why this year I'm taking the next one off my to-read pile no matter what it is - some of them have been on the piles for years, I'll never make a dent in it otherwise!

8!?! I'm not sure whether to cheer or meep, lol! Go you!

That's probably a good idea with the to-read pile. I alternate between phases of reading fiction and non-fiction, and I very much seem to be in a non-fiction phase at the moment. Unfortunately, I know that if I try to force myself to read something I'm not really in the mood for, chances are I'll abandon it unfinished, so in an effort to actually *finish* books I'm going with whatever I'm in the mood for!
