  1. José Ignacio – What a terrific summing-up of your reading! I’m looking forward to your reviews, and I’ll be especially interested in what you think of the Smith, the Temples,, the Tursten and the Fossum. Different books but all, in my opinion, very well-written.

  2. I like reading people’s ‘books read’ lists, and this is even better, with your wishlist and purchased list…

    Jose, nice list(s). I’ll be interested in what you thought of the Hill book – I got it myself last month. McGilloway too, I’ve only ever read his first book.
