New Year’s Resolution 2019

As I have done many times in the past, one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to read more!  There are so many great books and so little time.  Last year I succeeded in my decision to not spend time re-reading old favourites but sadly didn’t come close to my target of reading one new novel each week.

This year, I will try harder, starting with finishing the beautifully written The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.


Next on my reading list is the whole of the DI Frank Miller series by John Carson as I began editing these novels from book seven in the series.  With luck and not too many interruptions to his schedule this year, there will be many more Frank Miller novels to come during 2019.

All subscriptions to television will be cancelled to be replaced with a Kindle Unlimited subscription in an effort to ensure that I can try as many new authors as possible this year, but there are also a few books on my shelves that have been awaiting my attention for some time, including the ending to the Ibis Trilogy and a few others by Amitav Ghosh including The Glass Palace which was purchased in an airport some years ago!
