Time to count them. The ones that accompanied you on a plane to exciting holiday places, the ones you carried around on the beach, the ones that joined you on a terrace on a pleasant summer evening or the ones that were the last to stare you back before you fell asleep. How many? Of course, we're talking about the books you've read this summer. Because that hunger-to-read period is almost over and the busy routine takes over. Be quick to reflect - new September publications are just around the corner!
