April 2020 TBR

I hope that all of you reading this are keeping safe and well. We are living in interesting times at the moment, my library service has shut for the foreseeable future and renewed all the books that I have out until the 2nd of July. Because of this, I have changed the priority of things around this month and resorted my spreadsheet and have come up with the following TBR. It is pretty long and there is no way that I am going to be able to get through all of them, but these have been sorted into 2020 books first.  I won’t probably read them in this particular order, but it is a plan.

      Thanks Liz. I might be able to send a couple on if you’re interested in them

        Ooh, don’t go to the germ-filled post office! At least not yet! I’ll see what your reviews are like and add to the wish list …

        • Paul

          Ok. They have sensible precautions at our local post office. Some are library books, and I think they will want those back…
