Just wondering if anyone fancies joining me in a buddy read of Barbara Reynolds' biography of Sayers? It's out of print, in the UK anyway, but I recently bought a second-hand copy.

I can't get to it right away, but if anyone wants to join in I can fit in with you timing-wise.

Thanks everyone. HJ, let us know when you have a copy and are ready to go. Deborah, if you have time to read it later, the thread will stay open. :)

Karen Plummer Hi! I'd loved to participate too. Just ordered a copy and should have it by July 1. Looking forward to the conversation. I do need to hit up the library and read her letters too.

Maybe towards the middle of July, after we've had a chance to get the month's main group reads up and running? Would that suit everyone?
