it was amazing

Whilst looking for a book she owned, Susan Hill got side-tracked into looking at many other books on her shelves - some read, others still to read. the large number in the latter category gave her the idea of taking a year during which she would read books from nowhere else other than those she already had.
This book describes her discoveries and her reasons for the picking out the forty books she finally chose. Reading this was like taking a wonderful journey and stimulated me to want to read many of those she mentioned that I hadn't as yet read. It also made me want to go through my own shelves and do the same. At the time of reading I was preparing to move house and so inevitably got so distracted when packing up our books for the move! I now have a long 'waiting to read' list or rather two, one from my own shelves and one from Suasn Hill's list.
