When magazines do them, it's an end-of-year roundup. When I do it, it's 'OCD'.
Here's a list of everything I read in 2016.
- Moab is My Washpot - Stephen Fry
- The Rough Guide to Iceland - Rough Guides
Before a trip with a friend. The many photos I took can be seen here.

The name Evelyn Waugh always reminds me of a friend asking the librarian of our school's library for recommendations. After suggesting Waugh, my friend replied: "I don't really like books about war."
"...the only book you'll ever need about a haunted Scandinavian furniture superstore."
Only book on this list I gave up on, I'm afraid.
The above three, checked out from Hove library's children's section, were inhaled over a period when I was very ill with food poisoning. I was about three weeks into a new job I hated. I decided if having food poisoning and reading books was preferable to my job, I'd better give it up. So I quit. I'm now currently happier and healthier temping for numerous departments. I enjoy the flexibility and variety. I also enjoy lying around reading books all day (minus the food poisoning).
As good as everyone said it was.
Before a trip there with the guy who bought me No.38 and let me borrow No.51, and is the reason not as many books got read in the latter half of the year as in the former ;)
