2012 - Top Books

Anybody who knows me will be aware that I'm mathematically challenged. Besides, I hate giving numbers of stars as reviews and Top 5's or 10's or whatever numbers give me heartburn, so instead, I wanted to just re-mention some of the books that made my reading 2012. I was rather pleased to have hit the 120 that I set myself as a goal on Goodreads (in fact if I was up to date with reviews) I reckon that number will end up much closer to 140, which is not a bad effort given that it was a hellishly busy year all round. But enough waffle.

It's with some trepidation that I pick up this book. I've got to get up at sparrow's tomorrow and from the opening few chapters, this is guaranteed to keep me awake way too late.

From the Blurb:

Top Ten(s) of 2010

Having just posted my top 10 (with wiggle room) on 4MA - I thought I'd repeat it here.  Mind you, it's a thankless task having to pick an arbitrary number out of all the great books I've been lucky enough to read this year....

I really like collections of short stories but they are sometimes hard to find.  This is a really great collection with stories by a lot of very well known writers from the UK:
