In March I managed to get quite some books in, although to be honest two of them were rather thin.  So what did I read last month? Read on and find out! As always they have been given a rating X out of 5 and […]

In January I made quite the reading start for the year. Unfortunately, I was not able to keep up the high pace. So what did I read last month? Read on and find out! As always they have been given a rating X out of […]
