Back in 2010, I started recording what I had read, but was surprised when re-reading my list mid-2012 how little I could remember about what I had read. My blog was a note-to-self tool for refreshing my memory about what I had enjoyed and endured previously.
Anyway I did a few posts in May, 2012 and then ignored the blog until October when I started re-posting.
My original aim for the blog still rings true, but the bonus for me has been the connections I have made to a lot of fellow bloggers who read in my preferred genre of crime. In 2013, I have enjoyed reading many other blogs and have particularly enjoyed the chats and banter and conversations with a lot of folks, I like to now consider as friends.
If you have stopped by this year, last year or the year before - thanks. If you've commented - even better. Hopefully I haven't bored the pants off you, if I have, well that's tough!
A few statistics from my blog for last year...........
226 posts in all, making over 300 so far.
At time of writing my 3 most popular posts were,
Lawrence Block - Catch and Release (188 views)
Roger A. Price - By Their Rules (153 views)
Thomas Perry - The Boyfriend (143 views)
Andrew Nette - Ghost Money (9 views)
Gary Carson - Hot Wire (9 views)
Joe Clifford - Choice Cuts (9 views)
Plenty more of the same to come in 2014!
Good luck to you all this year, in your reading and more importantly in life!
