  2. That’s quite a challenge! How are you locating books or authors beginning with the right letter of the alphabet?

      I am enjoying having my reading linked to a challenge. I do have some books of my own that I haven’t read yet so I have set them aside for the letter they are linked to. I have been visiting the library to choose other books which I sometimes select by reviews from reading blogs that I follow. My next book is a poetry book that I used when I was teaching.

      1. It’s a good idea, and spurred on by you I’ve started a list of my own. I don’t think I’ll manage to read them all in a year, but it would be nice to do it all the same, however long it takes me. I look forward to reading your next review, were you an English teacher?

  3. Quite a varied career. I worked in a legal library for a short time and I loved the atmosphere, surrounded by all those old tomes.
