Books 2012

Even later that usual due to being distracted by Lego Lord of the Rings. It is hard to resist the call of a game with surfing Ents and watchmen who come out with lines like "I used to be a citadel guard at Helms Deep before I took an arrow to the knee". 93 titles this year with a few pretty heavy going ones in there. Reading time probably increased by the kids discovering re-runs and pop videos on YouTube so hogging the computer more in the evening.
