Karen | 41 comments Alison,
Will you let me know when you find a book with November in the title and a book with Topaz or Citrine in the title? I've looked, but no luck so far. :-(

Thanks,
Karen

Thanks - perhaps I'm just being a bit fussy about my choices. Might go for November by Simenon.

Janice (jamasc) | 50006 comments Someone Knows my Name was published in Canada under the name The Book of Negroes. It's an awesome book. I gave it 5 stars.

Alison Forde | 269 comments Note to self - read the Moon is a harsh mistress in December.
Read All Made up in Jan.


message 10: by Alison (new)

Alison Forde | 269 comments January - book with a flower completed.


message 11: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 50006 comments One more crossed off the list! :)


message 12: by Alison (new)

Alison Forde | 269 comments Yes - still struggling to decide on the rest & may have to remove Les Miserables from my TBR list (been on the longest) as I can't face reading it!


Cheryl has hopes her life will calm down soonish (cherylllr) Ah, but now you admitted that Les Mis is what you're supposed to read, so if you don't, you're cheating!

Just Kidding! I've totally got your back if we need to defend ourselves as we 'fudge' on the assignment. I can't imagine Janice wants us to think of this as a chore! :)


message 14: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 50006 comments I see nothing, I hear nothing, I say nothing. Hehehehe!


message 15: by Alison (new)

Alison Forde | 269 comments come on guys its about a million pages long - surely Monseur Hugo could have done a bit of editing.


Cheryl has hopes her life will calm down soonish (cherylllr) Maybe he was paid by the word?

That book sounds very interesting, Alison. I've added it to my wishlist.


message 21: by Alison (new)

Alison Forde | 269 comments Another one complete - the one with my name on it. 3 still to be read: biography, longerst on my TBR and a cause dear to me. No idea what to read for the last one.


message 22: by Alison (new)

Alison Forde | 269 comments Have decided my issue will be feminism - plenty of books to choose from!


message 23: by Alison (new)

Alison Forde | 269 comments Just finished reading Galápagos and realised it summed up quite a lot of things I feel strongly about; war, ecology, Western economic devlopement, so I have decided this should be my no 12.


message 24: by Alison (new)

Alison Forde | 269 comments Only one to go - the one longest on my TBR list. Les Miserables got punted into the abandoned list, so it's The Terror of Living: A Novel and I've just ordered a second hand copy from Amazon.
