Happy New Year & welcome to my first book/s of the year!
This year my NY books come to you from Bathurst, NSW and my mum’s garden featuring her potted Kangaroo Paw.
In an attempt to keep track of my reading plans I thought I’d start the year with a list. One of my aims this year is to read more books from my TBR pile. I hope this helps.
