May Reads

I knew I was having a busy month in May – but it was only when I sat down to post my list of reads for the months just ended that I realised just how busy it must have been –  because I managed to finish only 10 books in May. I did finish lots of journal articles which I don’t really have allowance fr in my book tally, but even including those, my reading was certainly a little neglected in May, owing largely to football injuries (not mine, my kids), the release of new book, and day job commitments. Still the ten I did read  were  goodies. So here’s the list with, as usual, links to those I reviewed.
