This thread has been a great source of both motivation and recommendations, I aimed for 12 books so exceeded my target. Off to find the new thread and sign up for next year :)

#85 The Normans by Lars something. Not as good as the Sea Wolves non fiction.

#86 After You by Jojo Moyes-sequel to Me Before You. Just love the main character.

May finish another one by midnight but not sure ;)
