My first blogger book challenge

And now for my list in alphabetical order by author:

Girl Singer an autobiography by Rosemary Clooney with Joan Barthel

The Provincial Lady in Wartime by E.M. Delafield

Dandelions in a Jelly Jar by Traci DePree

The Polysyllabic Spree by Nick Hornby

Cider with Rosie by Laurie Lee

The Child That Books Built A Life in Reading by Francis Spufford

A Right To Die by Rex Stout

The last three choices are in an omnibus called Life at Blandings by P.G. Wodehouse

The titles of the individual books are:

Something Fresh
Summer Lightening
Heavy Weather


  1. Good luck with the challenge, Nan! I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts on your book choices.

  2. Love, love, love the Polysyllabic Spree. That and the sequel, Housekeeping vs. the Dirt, are definitely in the top 10 of what I read in 2006. Hope you enjoy!


Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
