And only 31 books!
Hmm, quantitavely speaking this was very much a could-do-better year. However, I did read some cracking books. My top five were (in no particular order and ignoring re-reads):
- Freedom and Necessity by Steven Brust and Emma Bull
- Dr. Faustus by Thomas Mann
- Cross Stitch by Diana Gabaldon
- Bring up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel
- The World we Have Lost by Peter Laslett
