10 books this month, bringing the yearly total to 121, I think -  and the target of 100 for the year was surpassed. Might have to set myself more of a challenge next year -  at least my 3 year total is back upto 300-odd after a disappointing 77 last year.

Mixed bag month really, Guterson, Porup, Fante and Smith all fairly good, no - very good.

Coben, Mills and Everett, not too bad in an okay, averagely reasonable sort of way.

Cleave and Stevens - the 2 least enjoyable. Perhaps if they banged heads, they might make a decent book between them.

Lou Berney -  smashed it out of the park, to coin a phrase, top banana and a highlight of the month.

Full list read in December was.........

Dan Fante - Corksucker (2005) (4)

Chris Cleave - The Other Hand (2008) (3)
