I was not going to buy any new books this year, I have about 150 books crammed onto a shelf called the TBR pile.  My resolution was to read my way through the shelf only succumbing to new titles if they were available from the library or my favourite book swapping club!  However, I was given a gift certificate for Christmas and I noticed the new Geraldine Brooks novel, People of the Book, was out in paperback, so...

Last one, I promise!!

Happy New Year everyone.

Ya you did not spend any money on it so you did not break your new year's resolution.  Good luck in reading all of your books.
