I try very hard these days to avoid buying too many books. Don’t get me wrong – in my heart, I believe that there is no such thing as ‘too many books’. But the practicalities of life cannot be ignored and I am more inclined these days to favour having space in our apartment to spread out and read, rather than hundreds of books around to try and shelve.
Having said that, I occasionally let rip and have a splurge on new-to-me titles. Today was one such event.
This month we start with The Dry by Jane Harper, which is about the seemingly random murder of a family during an Australian drought. I don’t read much crime fiction these days. But there are tons of positive reviews for this one, including by highly respected crime writers and fellow bloggers. Perhaps I should give it a go some time.
