It's fun to give ideas to everyone wanting a look. With Bev's bingo cards needing to be planned carefully, my focus turned to 1960-1989 books. If she took away the line and allowed all literature to 1989, I would love mixing older with the fairly recent! I was saved oldies for this year. It is going to be filled with MANY old greats, from whom I have never read a page.

I have started the year treating myself to recent novels, that would suit Yvonne nicely. I have *AS MANY* 1990s, 2000s, 2010s novels I have not tried either. Before I use up birthday and Christmas gift certificates on work I'm unsure I like; I'm at last giving them a try!
