My 500th post
I thought I'd celebrate by adapting Simon's idea of Five from the Archive & post links to five posts that sum up my enthusiasms. They're the posts that have generated interesting discussions rather then the posts with the most hits. Looking through the list, most of the posts with very high numbers of hits have very few comments. Probably because they've been discovered by students looking for information about Sir Walter Raleigh & Emily Brontё or people googling terms like Royal Wedding & English Ghost!
This post, for Persephone Reading Weekend, generated a lot of enthusiastic responses - & some jealousy as well!
This post was my response to the changing fashions in cover art.
Excellent Women by Barbara Pym is one of those novels.
The Daughter of Time is one of the books that got me started on my obsession with Richard III & English history in general.
Abby. I was very touched by all the sympathetic comments from Abby's fans when she died in May last year.
this post so it's on with the next 500 posts!
