Can you believe the first week of December has already rushed by? I've had a terribly exhausting week working day shifts on one magazine and then subbing pages for its sister title in the evening, so I'm feeling a bit bug-eyed and I've not had much time, nor inclination, to do any reading. But I'm certainly not complaining — as a freelancer I'm always very grateful for any work that comes my way, even if it means that it comes my way all at once!
On another note, I hope you're all enjoying the advent calendar that kicked off on this blog last Sunday. If you are like me, your wishlist will already have grown substantially as a result — rest assured there are plenty more interesting and diverse recommendations to come.
And if you need any more recommendations, I should point you in the way of a list compiled by We Love This Book, which asked 10 UK-based bloggers (including me) to name their favourite book of the year. It's another eclectic list well worth checking out.
In the meantime, stay tuned for more daily recommendations here via the advent calendar — and if I can summon enough energy I might even get around to writing a review or two, as well.
