The books I didn't quite get to in 2011
The Absentee, I was sure I'd go straight on to read more Edgeworth. I'd already been tempted by these lovely new editions of two of her novels, Helen & Patronage by Sort Of Books. But, of course, I didn't!
Romantic Moderns this time last year that I bought a copy of Between the Acts straight away & haven't thought about it since. Maybe in 2012?
Conference at Cold Comfort Farm & Christmas at Cold Comfort Farm but Westwood is the one everyone is raving about, including Desperate Reader & Stuck In A Book.
review. I dipped into it this morning as I was taking the photo of the cover & I think I may read it next. How's that for a definite commitment? I've just finished my umpteenth rereading of Dorothy L Sayers's Gaudy Night & I'm only one chapter into Dorothy Whipple's Greenbanks so Shirley may jump in this afternoon as my New Year's Eve reading.
Desperate Reader & Book Snob. I'm fascinated by the suffragettes but I haven't got to it yet.
Edward Thomas reading trail was fascinating because I've always loved Thomas's poetry & I've read his wife Helen's books about him as well as Eleanor Farjeon's memoir. So, I had great intentions of reading Matthew Hollis's new book, Now All Roads Lead To France, during November. But, my Remembrance reading went in another direction & I didn't get to it.
Happy New Year from Lucky & Phoebe (that's a rare photo of them together) & here's to lots of lovely reading experiences for us all in 2012.
