A Year in Books – Quarter Three 2022

It seemed like a big moment reaching the midway point of the year, but it was also the point at which I really started to notice a dip in my concentration and that reading was getting progressively harder. I think work has been mad in the latter part of the this year which didn’t help, but how much did that affect my reading over all. well, let’s take a look at quarter three. Bearing in mind this was also the start of book festival season (Harrogate, Bute, Bloody Scotland and Capital Crime) it’s fair to say I had plenty of distractions …

Only 43 books this quarter – told you I was distracted. It’s still a pretty tidy total year to date though – 135 books – but it was very clear at this stage, I wasn’t going to be setting any records this year. Very happy with the books I did manage to read though and many of them very highly recommended. How many have you read?
