Confessions of a Book Hoarder… #BookTag #AmReading #BookBlogger

I saw this tag on Fiction Fan’s Book Reviews and, although I don’t really do many tags, this seemed like fun. Find an unread book in your TBR (physical or kindle) to match each letter of your blog name. A great way to bring attention back to possibly forgotten books needing some love.

If you fancy having a go, consider yourself tagged 😀

#Books I’d Like To Read in 2020 #BookBlogger #AmReading

The time has come to either buy another bookcase, a bigger house or be ruthless and part company with some books. I haven’t read anywhere near half of several hundred physical books and I’ve no idea of how many more are waiting on my kindle. Another few hundred, I’m sure. I never keep count for fear of a meltdown 😉 So, in 2020 I’m going to make a conscious effort to read more of my own books.

The Man From The Broken Hills by Louis L’Amour ~ Western Adventure #AudiobookReview #TuesdayBookBlog

Author: Louis L’Amour

Performed by MacLeod Andrews

Released March 2019 by Random House Audio

Category: Western Adventure, Audiobook Review

For years Milo Talon had been riding the outlaw trail, looking for a man who had betrayed his family. Only Hank Rossiter wasn’t the man he had been: old now and blind, Rossiter was trying desperately to hold on to a small ranch to support his daughter, Barbara. Suddenly Talon found himself in the middle of a range war, siding with the man he’d marked for payback. But had Rossiter really changed? And could his daughter be trusted by either of them? 

In the mood for something different as I looked through the new releases on Audible, I saw The Man From The Broken Hills narrated by MacLeod Andrews. It fit the bill perfectly, although I didn’t realise at the time it was part of a series. As it happens, it can easily be read, or listened to, as a standalone.
