You might think I don’t need a Favourites page when you can just browse my “5 star books” category, but on the contrary: I have many, many favourites from long before I started this blog, and many that reviews wouldn’t do justice. So here are a few of them, to give you an idea of my reading tastes. I’m sure there are a thousand others that I’ve missed out.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Bless you!
