I finished 14 books in August, most of them from the 2010 Booker long list. I was very impressed with the overall standard of the books I read, having more 4.5+ star reads than ever before. I only hope I can repeat this next month!

Plans for September
My first task is to finish the Booker long list – I have three more books left to go. I’m not sure I’ll manage to read them all before the short list is announced next Tuesday, but I’ll do my best!
Richard and Judy Book Club
I’m very excited about the launch of the Richard and Judy book club on Thursday – I’ll probably read one or two of their selections straight away. I was interested to listen to them talk about the launch of their book club in the video below – it sounds as though they have at least two books in translation. I’m sure that they’ll pick some fantastic books and I’ll enjoy their enthusiastic discussions.
I’ll also be reading most of the books on this list:
More Non-Review Posts
Next week my oldest son starts school and so I will have much more time to write blog posts. I hope that I’ll be able to use this extra time to research some bookish topics so I can produce some non-review posts that will interest you.
I’ll also do some fiddling behind the scenes to try to improve navigation around my blog.
Are you excited about the launch of the Richard and Judy book club?
