Welcome to 2012

I hope your new year celebrations went as planned. We had the usual bottle of champagne and plate of nibblies; very civilised. Stayed up and watched the fireworks from our back yard, and were in bed by 12.30am. We’re such party animals.
And over the next few weeks I plan to finish them all. In fact, I’ve already finished the Steve Jobs biography. It was very interesting and I really liked the fact that the author didn’t sugarcoat it. There is a danger that people who are loved and hated in equal measures will be painted in an overly flattering light by their biographers, but Walter Isaacson didn’t fall into that trap and the book is better for it.
I’m now halfway through The Fry Chronicles, which is richly entertaining and makes me think I don’t know nearly enough about the English language.
I’m also very much looking forward to the other two books.
