I have always loved reading, but have often struggled to find the time. However, moving to Korea and teaching, I have a lot more free time. Having no telly has also made a massive difference to how productive I am in my free time.
I love a good challenge so have decided this year I am aiming for 30. This was perhaps overambitious, but it’s good to aim high!
I have made a few errors in my books choices. They have all been hefty reads, almost 2500 pages in total!
I am always looking for my next book to read, so recommendations are always very much appreciated!
