12544 I'm almost at the end of The Summer Without Men by Siri Hustvedt and I just don't want it to end. She's a relatively new discovery for me but I absolutely adore her writing. Highly recommended.

12544 Thanks everyone. I'm definitely sold on the Kindle Paperwhite. Has anyone got any experience with the Kobo and how it compares to the Kindle?

12544 I'd like to nominate I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes.

It's getting rave reviews in my Twitter timeline!

12544 Thanks all - this is really helpful. I've decided to stick with what I know and upgrade to the Kindle Paperwhite.

12544 My beloved Kindle is on its way out so I'm in the market for a new e-reader. I'm trying to decide between another Kindle or the Nook. Does anyone have any experience with both and is there one that you favour?
12544 Controversially, Wolf Hall. I couldn't get past the first 200 pages.

12544 So many great recommendations on here.

12544 Thanks Vikki. Must have been having a moment when I posted this one. Glad you enjoyed those reads. I'm looking forward to picking them up.

12544 Okay, so I messed up a little but that's my first one down anyway. Pulse by Julian Barnes. A collection of short stories and I really enjoyed them. A 4* read for me.

12544 Whoops! Just realised I'm two books short on this challenge. I'm know I'm breaking the rules a little by amending this list at this point but I'm adding to it rather than changing so hope that doesn't count! I'm adding my alternates as One Breath Away and The Frozen Lake

12544 I'm so pleased to hear I've picked books you've all enjoyed. Should make the challenge an easy one this year. I'm also pleased to have inspired a few of you!

12544 It's so hard trying to stick to just 10 books. I could have added another dozen!

I've had the invisible bridge on the Kindle for the last 12 months but it's so long I've not been brave enough to start it! I think I'm going to tackle it first.

I loved The Moonstone so I'm really hoping I enjoy this one as much.

12544 Thanks Bill. I lost my way a little this year and failed miserably at the challenge so some of this is a repeat of this year's list. I'm looking forward to getting into them.

I loved between shades of gray Kim. Really high up my list of all time faves.

One of my favourite reads of last year. I'd happily read this one again.
