I’m so proud of the little Best of 2012 series I’ve put together on the blog over the past month or so – some of my favourite bloggers and writers were kind enough to contribute, and I’ve had great feedback on Twitter from bloggers, writers, readers, and publishers. A huge thank you to everyone who contributed their amazing pieces – I really appreciate it. We celebrated a great year in books. As a nice little New Year’s Eve post I thought I’d do a summary of the series and link to all the posts from here. Happy reading!

2013 is set to be another amazing year for books, despite the closure of some book shops and a decline in the sales of print books. I for one am sticking with print and my fingers are crossed a few more book shops will start reappearing on the high street soon. The written word is a cornerstone of our civilisation and we cannot let it fade away.
I hope you all have a great night and a very happy 2013. See you on the other side… x
