30.2 - Cat's Task: Reading in the Valleys

I'm hanging out at my sister & brother-in-law's place in Wales, to avoid climbing the walls in my small London flat with no one to talk to. We're all readers, so lets explore some of our favourites.

As this is lockdown comfort reading, one book must be a reread. REQUIRED: State in your post which book is a re-read.

One book with Graphic Novel MPG may be used for this task.

Pick two tasks and read a book for each. REQUIRED: State in your post which options you are using.

1. Their favourite authors are .... not mine! They love Charles Dickens(BiL) and John le Carré (sis), where I am devoted to Terry Pratchett.

Read a book by one of these authors. A collaboration by one of these authors with ONE other author can be used.

2. We do all agree that PG Wodehouse is top reading and that Evelyn Waugh is an underrated comic writer. I'm trying to persuade them that they should check out Sir Pterry's work.

Read a book with MPG Humour or Satire

3. Wales is green, hilly, and sheepy. And utterly lovely!

Read a book with the letters WALES in the title / subtitle.

Nicole | 1314 comments Why Me, Why This, Why Now?: A Guide to Answering Life's Toughest Questions I am not sure this fits the bill as comfort reading but I am very interested in seeing if it impacts me now the way it did over 20 years ago when I randomly got it in a library discard sale. WALES can be found in title/subtitle combo.

I also can finally read a book from my best friend! The Last Black Unicorn for MPG Humor!
