  1. Nice to see so many ‘hits’ on the site – I search ‘Reader online’ because ‘The Reader’ brings up too much on the film!

    It would be interesting to see a list of which posts got the most comments (not ‘trackbacks’), too, I think, justo see where most initial reader interest is generated into action.

    For example, there was a ‘feisty and fun’ debate on the Christmas books and earlier in the year on ‘The Way Through the Woods’.
