Cathy over at 746Books is hosting her 20 Books of Summer challenge for the second year. The challenge runs from the 1st June 2015 to the 4th September 2015. But I€™ve decided to limit the challenge to reading 10 books this summer from my own books.
This is my progress page with links to my posts on the books I’ve read:
- The Remorseful Day by Colin Dexter €“ the last Morse book. I€™ve also watched the TV version.
- Poirot Investigates by Agatha Christie €“ an early collection of short stories.
- Sad Cypress by Agatha Christie €“ also featuring Poirot. This is one of the novels I have left to read for the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge.
- Zen there was Murder by H R F Keating €“ murder on a Zen Buddhism course.
- The Day of the Lie by William Brodrick €“ a Father Anselm book. How could I have forgotten I had this book? I’ve loved the other Father Anselm books I’ve read!
- A Medal for Murder by Frances Brody €“ the second Kate Shackleton mystery, set in the 1920s.
- The Man in the Wooden Hat by Jane Gardam €“ the second book in the Old Filth trilogy. I’ve read the first one and can€™t imagine why I haven€™t read this one before now €“ well, I can €“ other books got in the way! Read.
- Silas Marner by George Eliot €“ I thought I€™d include a short classic.
- Great Escape Stories by Eric Williams €“ another book I€™ve had so long I can€™t remember where or when I got it. It comprises twelve true-life escape and evasion stories from the Second World War and one from the Korean War.
- How the Girl Guides Won the War by Janie Hampton. I was full of enthusiasm to read this when I bought it, but then put it on the shelf, where it got hidden behind other books until today!
