10 Books of Summer 2015 Challenge Progress Page

10 books of summerCathy 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:

  1. The Remorseful Day by Colin Dexter €“ the last Morse book. I€™ve also watched the TV version.
  2. Poirot Investigates by Agatha Christie €“ an early collection of short stories.
  3. 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.
  4. Zen there was Murder by H R F Keating €“ murder on a Zen Buddhism course.
  5. 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!
  6. A Medal for Murder by Frances Brody €“ the second Kate Shackleton mystery, set in the 1920s.
  7. 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.
  8. Silas Marner by George Eliot €“ I thought I€™d include a short classic.
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
