I'm Making a List.......
There are some books that I have to read for groups to which I belong and the first two
Gifted ~ Nikita Lalwani
Felicia's Journey ~ William Trevor
come into that category. I shall also have to make an early start on
Daniel Deronda ~ George Eliot
to be ready for the meeting in February when I'm leading the discussion on it. Because I realise that I'd bitten off rather more than I could chew expecting myself to read
Middlemarch ~ George Eliot
as well I've swapped the print version for an audio recording and that will take care of the hour before bed each night quite nicely. In addition I've added a Virago, a Persephone, a children's novel, a detective and the latest book by one of my favourite current novelist so
The Weather in the Streets ~ Rosmond Lehmann
Saplings ~ Noel Streatfeild
Reckless ~ Cornelia Funke
Trick of the Dark ~ Val McDermid
The Death of King Arthur ~ Peter Ackroyd
complete my list. As I finish each one another can be added to replace it and again, I'll take stock at the end of the month and see how this has worked out. I may be asking myself to be far too organised but I am really ashamed of where my lazy reading habits have taken me over the past year and I'm determined to try and put things to rights.
