I am determined to be a more conscientious blogger in 2015 - I was horrified to realise that I haven't blogged since March. It's been a busy year! I haven't been very good about reading other people's blogs either, and I've missed it. So I'll make time for both things.


  1. Joanne, it's lovely to see you posting again! Happy New Year - may it be filled with good books. I recognize some of the names & titles on your list, but quite a few are new to me.

    1. Thanks Lisa, I intend to be a lot more disciplined about blogging in 2015.

  2. Lovely to see you blogging again, Joanne!
    And even lovelier to see Comyns here :)
