I’ve decided to go all minimalist with my books, because many of them are not just sparking joy, they’re sparking misery. Welcome to the Life-Changing Magic Of Cheering Yourself Up.
Time for my now-annual tradition of reviewing the events of the book world before anything has actually happened, because I’ll be far too busy in December 2016 – smiting my enemies and sewing appliqué onto my elbow patches, etc – to do it after events have passed. This also saves you time: after reading this, you needn’t bother with the end of this year at all. Isn’t that wonderful?
