I have always enjoyed reading novels, but I spend much of my time reading academic books and policy papers for work and always used to feel rather guilty about reading for fun. So, a couple of years ago I decided to dedicate more timeto novel-reading and set myself the target of reading 52 novels per year (i.e. an average of one per week). I’m now in my third year of the project and this blog is a chance for me to record the reading I’ve done and to receive suggestions for other novels. I’m also happy to hear from anyone who wishes to discuss any of the books discussed here.
