December Book Haul and 2015 Reading Resolutions
There's a new video up here over on my Youtube Channel, where I chat about the books I bought in December, and my reading resolutions for 2015. I'm aiming to read 100 books this year (last year I managed 80, and that was without reading any novels between January and May, as I was only reading research material for The Bookshop Book during that time, so I'm hoping I can manage 100). I also want to read more classics, and try and reduce my TBR. Do you have any reading resolutions? xx

From the oldest bookshop in the world, to the smallest you could imagine, The Bookshop Book examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places, and looks at over three hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents (sadly, we’ve yet to build a bookshop down in the South Pole). The Bookshop Book is a love letter to bookshops all around the world.
