My book club read this several years ago. It will be a lovely re-read for me. I had been meaning to read it again, now I have a very good reason to refresh my memory!

PS -

I wish I had the edition you show in your post. The cover on my paperback looks like ugly wallpaper.


Oh Karen you are in for such a treat, I feel quite envious that you are discovering it for the first time and I love the cover of your edition. I need no excuse to re-read this book, I seem to read it every year now, possibly the only book I ever choose to read more than once.


I'm looking forward to the Book Group later in the year.
For now, one of the books I'm taking on holiday is - Testament. I missed out on your read earlier in the year. I had just started reading book blogs and yours was one of the first I enjoyed, so thank you for your inspiration. I know I have some catching up to do, but it's never too late to get involved in the blogosphere!


A good one to re-read!

I will most definitely be joining in for this one Karen as I have yet to read this and know its a must, must read book. Hoorah!


Read it? I can practically recite it! Since I have failed to acquire a copy of this month's book from the library, I shall look forward to embarking on the annual re-read of I Capture the Castle early this year. People might enjoy watching the film as well - although I miss the huge chunks it was necessary to leave out, I think it's very faithful to the spirit of the book. August is a good time to read it, too - it's a summer book, somehow.


I would love to reread this and will pull my copy off my shelf...


I read this after it was mentioned here some weeks ago and will read the work again because the 'book of the month' is an essential part of my calendar now. Second reads are often a good experience anyway. (Some books achieve multiple reads!)

Yippee! I just love it when you pick things sitting in my TBR pile. :) I'm like Simon, I've been wanting to read this for a while and just haven't gotten to it -- this will force me to it.


I read Testament a couple of months ago, after your recommendation, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I just read I Capture the Castle for the first time last week. I think it's going to be an annual read for me, too!


I'd love to join you for 'I capture the castle'! I read this once, but didn't quite get what all the fuss was about. I hope to enjoy it more this time around.


I really must read this book although must shouldn't come into it! I'll be in Canada but hope to be able to send in my thoughts. The enthusiasm in the comments above is a great motivator. I'll order it immediately!

Ooo, maybe time for a re-read...
