Art Garfunkel famously keeps track of the books he has read since 1968. As of writing this, the count is 1327 (he does not add a review). I thought I could do something similar but I am adding short reviews of books as I read them, and I rake my brain over what I read over the last decades. This is, evidently, a work-in-progress: there are 462 reviews so far. Titles marked with a * are particular favorites.


Ian Rankin: Heart Full of Headstones

Latest (2022) part of the Rebus story. As we start this book, John is older, frailer, and not in a good place. I cannot really say a lot without spoiling it, but rest assured that the writing is as sadly poignant as ever and the plot sharpish. But that is not even the point, as you shall see if and when you go here.
