So January's choice is 'Trigger Warning' by Neil Gaiman, which is a collection of short stories and you can read a little about the author in this post.
Having decided that I am in a bit of a rut where reading is concerned and that being challenged to read 'new' authors would do me no harm at all, I have ordered said book and am now awaiting its delivery. I'll let you know my thoughts on it in due course.
There is also a welsh version of this, 'Blwyddyn o Ddarllen Beiddgar' which recommends books written in welsh, of course, but I don't think my level of expertise in the welsh language is up to that just yet. There are challenges and then there are challenges!
