    Wowzer, busy month for you Stu! What a lot of books you managed to read (i think I only managed 8 but one of those was a thick Victorian book which tend to take me a while).

    Glad you had a good week off too 😉

    Quite the month! And I must say I am always really impressed with the range of your reading choices. When do we take off for Don Quixote?

    I’m waiting for Cafe Europa at the library! Should be in soon and, from the looks of it, I won’t be disappointed.
