66 Books

I'm not great at the whole self-promotion thing, so I'll just mumblingly note that I'm one of the writers involved in this - And then I'll shamble off elsewhere. (2 Kings. My dates are the 10th (October), 14th, 19th and 28th. Other writers involved include Wole Soyinka, Jeanette Winterson and the Archbishop of Canterbury. Yes. I am kind of making up the numbers.)
