Making an entry in my reading journal today I looked back to see what I was reading on or about this date in each of the last few years, and just for fun, here are the titles:
Astercote by Penelope Lively. The author's first novel, and while you can feel her 'writing her way in', it's worth a read.
The Importance of Being Seven by Alexander McCall Smith. You can't really go wrong with a McCall Smith, and this book is part of his very popular 44, Scotland Street series.
