Bibliophile Sorry, haven't read either of these.


message 2: by Charles (new)

Charles Nor have I.


message 3: by Bettie (new)

Bettie Any books from that year that you have read - there must be loads published here but I sure haven't read
them (and here's the real nub) - as far as my poor record keeping shows so far.

I do know that it wasn't such a good year for Anthony Eden from the British Empire POV.

hahhaha

times change, thank goodness.

Hayes There's also Long Day's Journey into Night, but it's not a favorite of mine. Someone else can vote for it.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It is a favorite of mine, and I did vote for it! LOL

The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis is eligible, but someone else can vote for it!


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Happy to oblige. Also from 1956: "Till We Have Faces"! :)

Removed, however, "Misty of Chincoteague" (it's from 1947).


message 7: by Emily (new)

Emily Unfortunately, Eloise is from 1955, not 1956.
