Can you ever have too many books?

After a loooooooong wait (clearly he just wanted to build up the suspense…), here is M’s first official post.  All thoughts expressed are his own and do not necessarily represent those of his management, a.k.a. me 😉 Over to M: We have a lot of books. Not compared to a library of course, but by […]

Our reading list – May 2013

Here’s the update on what we’ve read this past month, which has yet again taken me a few days to collate – I’m guessing this is going to become a feature of these posts 😉 The full list of books that we’ve read can be found here on Pinterest. In May, our favourite books were: Me […]

Glasses books – an update
