My Year In Books – Quarter Three 2020

So. Quarter three. We emerged from lockdown. I turned 45. I ate a lot of chocolate. I read some books. Not as many, but enough. I’m still impressed with my total. I think I slowed down a little here, partly because, as a nation, we regained a little freedom and I, like many of my friends, decided to make the most of it whilst it lasted, knowing that things would all change again soon enough. I was from later in the summer that my attention started to wain and my reading mojo started to dip. But I still managed to read and review some very fab books so here is my Q3 roundup.

43 books in three months? Not bad I guess. I listened to far fewer audiobooks over this period and this really was the start of my great reading decline so I’m as curious as you are (or probably aren’t) about how that translated into quarter four reads. Come back tomorrow and we can find out.
