With thanks to flexnib for the idea, starting a list of what I’m reading.  Sort of a celebration of getting back into reading after about 12 months off for various reasons.  Note that my definition of reading includes audiobooks as they are my current favourite way of getting words into my brain (and I don’t need to find my glasses!).

As of April 2011, I’ve decided it’s easier to just include a link here to my LibraryThing page – otherwise I’m updating 2 places, which clearly doesn’t make sense!
