Reading Review 2016

I read 49 books in 2016, which is less than in 2015.


books read in each year

I think my favourite from the books I read this year was “The Bastard of Istanbul” by Elif Şafak, a popular Turkish writer.

This was the first year I started reading books on my phone using a Kindle App, the first was “As I Died Laughing” by David Lloyd. It is handy when I want a book with me but don’t want to carry a physical book and the highlighting option is useful, when I get down to writing a review. However, I don’t think I’ll be giving up on paper based books just yet.

I am currently reading “Pickwick Papers” by Charles Dickens on the app and carry around a traditional paperback of “Lethal People” by John Locke to read on the metro, where I do most of my reading.


About jimholroyd365

Hi, my name is Jim, I am an Englishman living in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi. I started this blog to share my interests, my photos and to make sense of my world. I take a lot of photographs of various subjects, some of which I intend to share here. I collect diecast cars and get the same thrill at 50 as I did when I was 8, when I find a car I'm searching for, Don't worry, I have a separate blog for this hobby. Please feel free to comment and ask questions on what I blog. I am quite new to this blogging, I was inspired by reading a book, which began as a blog of a London Ambulance Driver: "Blood, Sweat and Tea". I hope my blog will be entertaining and amusing, I did try stand up comedy in the UK and had seven gigs before I left to teach English in Georgia. I love reading and so the blog will include book reviews of books as I finish them.I don't know about which direction this blog will go, I am a great believer in serendipity...let the journey begin...
