Still, a new year and better, I am sure.
My first two books are both library books, as I spend a lot of time in the library while my baby plays.
Book 1; David Lodge's Ginger, you're barmy, set in 1950s Britain when National Service (conscription) was obligatory and a waste of time for all. A good story, but dated. 224 pages.
Book 2; Paul Murray's Skippy Dies; a novel, set in a school in Dublin, Ireland in the 2000s. The school reminded me so much of mine, and yes, the Fathers were the same order and I went to a sister school. An excellent book, though a grim picture of Ireland. 661 pages.
So 2/50, and 885/15,000.
