For the last few years, there has been little change in the most-read posts on this blog.
No matter how much fiction I write, or how much I love to post about films and cinema, none of that gets close.
As Julie is watching ‘Dancing On Ice’, and I would sooner sit out in the rain than watch that, I just checked my stats again.
Here are those top posts, with number ten first.
