Books read in May 2010:
- The Nickle Nackle Tree by Lynley Dodd.
- All Seated on the Ground by Connie Willis.
- Master and Commander by Patrick O’Brian.
- Hue & Cry by Shirley McKay.
- The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley.
- Tamsin by Peter S. Beagle.
- Bede: a novel by C. A. Cole and Kelly Ledbetter.
- The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie.
- A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
This list is ever so slightly deceptive, if only because I still have 10 pages left to read of A Study in Scarlet, but I think I can handle that easily enough in the next half hour.
Today, for my birthday, I got a key, a fudge doughnut, and an adventure. The key was to an office; the fudge doughnut was from my officemates; and the adventure was one undertook by Sarah, David, and I, for we climbed Arthur’s Seat, that extinct volcano that stands so magnificently in Edinburgh.
And now, to bed and to finish A Study in Scarlet, and to see what June brings tomorrow.
