The Big Summer Reading Book Blog Post


Recently, I got three 'new' books : The Pagan Lord by Bernard Cornwell, The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, and The Fall of Arthur by Tolkien. The last two, it was because I found the physical book too 'small' for a dustjacket, if you know what I mean. I wanted a physical print edition so I decided to hold out for the paperbacks. The books I named aren't 'brand new' but they have been recently published in the format I wanted them, so they're new to me.


Anyway, this post is about me recommending some books to you, the blog readers, for your summer reading.
