Once and Again: Read a Second Book by that Awesome Author Challenge

My one reading goal in 2016 is to read more print books. The past couple years have been quite full (!) and much of my reading has been at night on the kindle. I'm hoping to spend more time in the study/library

with my beloved paper books.

In anticipation of this, I have joined a reading challenge from my blogging friend who lives on Prince Edward Island (one of my favorite places on the earth). It is called Once and Again: Read a Second Book by that Awesome Author Challenge, and you may read about it, and join if you wish, here.

The authors I plan to read:

Anita Desai: I read The Artist of Disappearance in 2012, and loved the writing. I plan to read Feasting, Fasting and/or Clear Light of Day.

Allegra Goodman: I have read Kaaterskill Falls many times, and Paradise Park once, and have meant to read more by this author. I want to read The Family Markowitz and/or The Cookbook Collector.

Julia Stuart: I read The Pigeon Pie Mystery in 2013, and enjoyed it. I am going to read The Matchmaker of Périgord.

Rosy Thornton: I read The Tapestry of Love in 2011, and have meant to read other books by her. I own More Than Love Letters, and Ninepins, which the author actually sent to me. I will read one or both of them for this challenge.

Edwin Teale Way: I read Springtime in Britain, and have wanted to begin his seasonal journeys across the United States so shall read his 1951 North with the Spring, during springtime, of course. 


  1. Glad you are joining in and that it was just what you wanted to read! Great minds, and all that.

  2. I thought I was the only one who read one book by an author, had firm plans to read another book by them, and then just left those intentions behind. I even have the 2nd book I want to read in most cases, and still don't get to it. Nice to know there are others who do this.

  3. This sounds like a good challenge, fun and sensible at the same time.

    1. Ha, I AM fun and sensible at the same time!

  4. These look like great choices. Happy 2016 reading.

  5. What a good idea, I shall add this thought into my reading challenge

  6. This sounds like the perfect challenge for me. I should combine it, though, with reading from my own shelves. I really want to focus on reading what I own in 2016.
