A Year In Books – 2021 Quarter 2

I had a really good, very productive, start to 2021 as far as reading went. Benefitting from good weather, long walks, lockdown and a good long list of audio books I managed to read a lot more books than. I could concentrate on in the second half of the year. I think freedom went to my head. I certainly had a lot more time out and about, making up for lost time. But I definitely made the most of my time from easter through to the start of summer. June was only such a quiet month as I was on leave for two weeks. So just what did I manage to read in quarter two? Well … read on to find out.
