1: The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Nightime: Mark Haddon: ISBN 0099450259

I joined a book club, and accidentally ended up with two copies of this through inattention. They've been sitting on my shelves for several months now, and I thought I'd finally give it a read, and blazed through the whole book in the space of 2.5 hours in the bath this afternoon. I don't know what to say about it really: I enjoyed it. A fairly interesting little tale, but the point of view of the narrator makes the telling more interesting. I can see why not everyone would get on with it though.

Minor resolution for this year: try to make sure I read more new books than re-reading old ones, and more "real" books than trash. Will see how it goes. Wonder what to read next?
