The Hop

Hello Hoppers!

It's been a busy week at Learning to Read (after a fairly chilled summer), and it's going to get busier: here's my list of books to read.

And here's what I've read this past month:

Twelve Bar Blues is a novel about jazz, hookers and stories.
Aberystwyth Mon Amour is a crime noir set in Wales.
Power, Sex, Suicide is the amazing story of the mitochondria in our cells.
Cloud Atlas is an incredible, impressive and entertaining story that spans a millenia.

And my personal recommendation of the week... Mark Watson's Eleven, a story about the spiralling consequences of all our actions. It's a great book.


  1. Sounds like you have had a great month. I have been looking forward to reading Cloud Atlas for a long time

  2. Hello. Your 'explain yourself' blurb made me laugh. Best of luck in becomming a writer thing :)

  3. Hello, just stopping by from the hop and I'm off to have a better look around your blog. Have a great weekend!

  4. I think I'm following Becky (Pageturners) around the Blog Hop again! Oh well, she is half an hour ahead of me!

    Adding your blog to my follow list!

  5. I'm just hopping by---hope you have a great weekend!

  11. Stopping in from the hop. Just read your review of "Three Men In A Boat". I started reading it yesterday and it's funnier than I expected it to be, which is always a good thing. I like your blog.
