And the Winner is ….


Here you can see our bookclub in action 😉 It was time to relax after an exhausting voting session that meant voting for the next 13 books to read (why 13 btw ?). Jeez – not exactly easy with all these brilliant books to choose from. We all could suggest 3-4 books and had 6 votes. So glad I wasn’t the one who had to do the maths here …

In red you see the winners and hence a selection of the books that will be reviewed here over the next 12 months.

Happy with our choice ? What would you have chosen ? There is of course always the chance to read them all eventually….
