Has anyone read The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934? That's one of my favourite journals. Highly recommended.

Amber (amberterminatorofgoodreads) The Diary of a Young Girlis pretty good. My English class had to read this book in the 8th grade. It was a pretty interesting account of anne frank.

Dhanaraj Rajan | 2962 comments I am reading an interesting book, 84 Charing Cross Road. Correspondence between a reader in US and a person employed in a book shop that specialises in second hand copies of pieces of literature in UK becomes a story in itself. A marvelous piece of letter writing....

Pink I'm currently reading a huge compilation of Jessica Mitford's letters Decca: The Letters of Jessica Mitford she had a fascinating life and family and there are many hilarious letters.

Claire (cjeskriett) | 14 comments Ooh, I've had that Decca book on my shelf for ages Pink, just not got to the front of the pile yet. Sounds like I should shift it forward.

Pink Decca is a great book, it's huge, but can be easily dipped in and out of. I find myself reading big chunks at a time though as it's so fascinating.

Pink I recently finished Dear Lumpy: Letters to a Disobedient Daughter and Dear Lupin...Letters to a Wayward Son which were okay, but became a bit repetitive. They were Christmas e-book bargains, which I've been trying to get through.
