I Read 63 Books in 2019

As a member of Goodreads you get to set yourself a reading challenge of how many books you want to read in the coming year. In 2017 I set a goal of 40 and read 41. In 2018 I set a goal of 38 and read 39. This year I knew my reading game had gone up a level, so I set my goal to 50, and as of last night, have read 63 books and started a 64th. These are those 63 books I read in 2019, Date Read being the day I finished said book. Now to set my goal for 2020…

    Hello Steve,

    Have just read a number of your reviews on Amazon & wondered please if you might take a look at the novels I have currently on Amazon in both electronic format but also in paperback.-

    “Tales Of Entrapment.”
    Book 1. DEATH ON THE ALGARVE (Eyes Of The Water)
    Book 2. UNCLE JOE’S REVENGE (Death On The Cut)
    Book 3. DEVOID OF GUILT (A Portuguese Harvest Of Death)

    Its an adult murder / mystery set on the sunny Algarve in Portugal.

    And my latest novel.-
    Book 4. SHE’S MISSING

    Another adult thriller this time set in the county of Lancashire in the U.K. in 1976 when suddenly without warning two young women go missing up on the West Pennine Moors above the old market town of Chorley.

    So…please…take a look & let me know what you think.

    If you want any other details about me or my novels then please just drop me a line.

    Thank you for your time.
    Best Regards
