Sunday Seven/The next books I want to buy

I thought I might start my own little list and post it on Sundays instead of doing a Thursday Thirteen each week. Sometimes, it is hard to come up with 13 items. :<) So, here is my first Sunday Seven, a list of the next books I want to buy, in no particular order.

Leonard Woolf: A Biography by Victoria Glendinning

Thomas Hardy by Claire Tomalin

Heirloom Baking with the Brass Sisters by Marilynn Brass and Sheila Brass

American Bloomsbury by Susan Cheever

Rumpole and the Reign of Terror by John Mortimer

Mrs Miniver by Jan Struther, from a used bookstore

Beatrix Potter: A Life in Nature by Linda Lear


  1. I've always wanted to read Mrs. Miniver, too, Nan.

  2. I have read it, Les, in a beautiful old library copy. There are newer reprints, but I'd like to try and find an old one to buy.


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.
