It is now half-way through August and my reading year (September to the following August) is just about over. I won’t be adding any more books to the 2018 long list for a “The Very Best!” Book Awards, so the list will remain unchanged and I will be announcing the winners in mid-September. There will be three categories:
- Best Fiction (includes Short Fiction as well)
- Best Non-Fiction
- Best First Book (Fiction or Non-Fiction)
As for the upcoming year, I have a small stack that’s growing as the Fall 2018 releases come trickling in. There are also some 2018 books here that I never got around to reading yet.
A couple of these have already received some awards, such as Peter Clair’s Taapoategl & Pallet and Michael Kaan’s The Water Beetles. I am also anxious to read Jeanette Lynes’ new book too. I hope 2018 was a good year for you when it came to books. It’s a good thing I keep
Enjoy the rest of your summer, and keep reading, it’s good for the brain!
