Fewer than usual. Lots of travel that did not facilitate reading.

One thought on “October Books

  1. It’s always a surprise to me when (and which) tweets get picked up. I’ve not had any go quite as big as you (I think I’ve topped out around 5,000 clicks), but it always comes because someone big spots something I’ve posted and retweets it, suddenly opening up a firehose.

    These sometimes bring in a few people, but yeah, it very much depends on whether I’ve had anything else interesting in my previous few tweets!
