End of Year Reading

Cat reading tastes…
Mara: Any suggestions on what books to take to the beach?

Bao: Pack your Kindle. Randomly select.

Mara: What have you been reading lately?

I also purchased
Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents
Bao: Well, there are heaps, but Adam Sisman’s John le Carré: The Biography, Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See, and Terry Pratchett’s Small Gods: Discworld are the purchased ones I keep turning back to from the hundred-odd downloaded free samples…

Mara: That is so you. Downloading hundreds of samples and rarely making the commitment to buy the full book.

And where do we get our suggestions? New York Review of Books. The Guardian. The Economist.

Happy New Year for 2016.
Whatever you are, be a good one.
(attributed to Lincoln, but some say Thackeray)
