Books and Stuff

I'm back from London. I had a good time although it was a bit too cold. I'm going to post pictures eventually but I keep saying that for all my vacations and then never get round to it :D I'll try, though.

And I bought books, despite my best intentions not to. I have way too many unread books on my shelves but I'm weak when it comes to books. Here's what I bought:

1. Death and the Virgin by Chris Skidmore

2. Margaret Beaufort by Elizabeth Norton

3. Lancaster and York by Alison Weir

Books I've read:

11. All the Colours of Darkness by Peter Robinson - 3.5/5

12. Suche (Search) by Monica Kristensen - 2.5/5

13. White Nights by Ann Cleeves - 3.5/5

14. Forty Words for Sorrow by Giles Blunt - 3/5

Update on reading

I still can't write book reviews but I wanted to at least mention the last four books I've read. I won't be able to reach my goal of reading 40 books this year. I really have to think about what my goal for next year is going to be.
