Continued from this thread.

The struggle enters a new and more desperate phase on my 60th birthday.

Number of books on the physical TBR shelves 54
Number of books on the virtual TBR shelves 118

The physical TBR books are up a little from last year, but there has been a massive increase in the virtual TBR (almost double from this time last year).

All books purchased up to today count as ROOTS from now on.

In an atttempt to bring the burgeoning TBR shelves (physical and virtual) (not to mention my burgeoning weight) under control I decided earlier this year that I would only buy books as follows:

1. 2 books as a reward for each kg I lose;
2. next in a series;
3. bookclub books.

Let's just say I did not lose enough weight to justify the books bought. Try again after the birthday celebrations

Currently reading:

The Mammoth Book of Roman Whodunnits edited by Mike Ashley
The Hanging Tree by Ben Aaronovitch

Happy new thread from me too, Robert. There's a couple of books on your October list that I want to read (SPQR and Accidental Saints).

Ooh, I've just noticed (having followed the link from your previous thread rather than finding it in the group) that this thread is in the 2016 group rather than the 2017 one!

Happy birthday and happy new thread (wherever it might be!) Some interesting reads planned for October - look forward to your reviews :)
