OK. I'm still only shooting for 25. We'll see if I have a better year this year.

1. Confessions of a Shopaholic - Sophie Kinsella
2. One Fifth Avenue - Candace Bushnell
3. Ida B - Katherine Hannigan
"It rained that afternoon and all evening, the kind of rain that stings when it hits your skin. And that felt just about right."
4. Love the One You're With - Emily Giffin
"But that night, I clung to the faith that he'd surprise me and show up. I imagined the gauzy, backlit scene. Our eyes locking and the crowd parting as he found my lips, right at midnight. Just like in WHEN HARRY MET SALLY."

Pretty good indepth reporting on how the music industry has continued to shoot itself in the foot each and every time new technology comes along. Scary how an industry so once focused became so utterly irrelevant.

Extremely fascinating insight into the life of one of Britain's better known stalwart radio DJ's. You think he's been on BBC for ever until you read this and realise his career with "Auntie" has been spotty, to say the least. Ups and downs with drugs, booze and more make this a fast-moving tale which is well-written and a fabulous fast read

A "page-turning political thriller" says the cover. "A page-turning political thriller with a ludicrous and somewhat unnecessarily-farcical final chapter" says CR, evidently pissed that he wasted part of his vacation reading this utter shite
