The year of reading women… starts today

Yesterday  I was looking over my book-a-holic wife’s shelves, hoping she had a couple of early Gillian Slovo novels (nope).

While we were talking about the wonderful Barbara Kingsolver today, the wife suggested today that I spend a year where all the fiction I read is  all by women, (with a bias towards non-Western).  And that I keep at least a tally, or ideally do blog reviews.

It’s a corking idea (and not just because it comes from She Who Must Be Obeyed).

So that’s what I am going to do.  It means that more Reginald Hill (a new discovery for me) will have to wait.  But it also means that I will plough through a lot of stuff that has mysteriously never made it to the top of my to-read pile…

Watch this space.
First reviews will be – Several Deceptions by Jane Stevenson (read it last week. Excellent) and the Hunger Games 2 and 3 (reading now).
