      I just finished grocery run, hanging up flowerbaskets and now going to finish ‘Ragtime’ (E.L Doctorow). It is surprisingly very good! So I don’t have to meet u in the #MinistryOfUtmostDisappointment !!

    Thanks for featuring my blog here, Nancy. And I also enjoyed a look at Brona’s list and Cleo’s classic site. Cleo’s Classics List reminds me I haven’t gotten back to reading a couple of Shakespeare’s plays, as I had planned. After my summer list, I hope to do that.

    And I finally fixed my blog list so that your current blog is showing.

      So glad you could connect with Cleo’s and Brona’s blogs.
      They have some impressive books read and many challenges that they are working on.
      After a few months in a ‘blog-dip’ I am slowly getting back to my old ‘blog-self’. I hope to add a few thing to the blog and thinking ahead for AusReading Month in November…and challenges for 2018! ps thanks for the adjustment on your blog 🙂


  3. What a fantastic idea, Nancy! The glue connecting us together! Thanks a bunch! Brona does something like this with the Classics Spin where she chooses possible people to read with. From checking out Tracy’s blog, I’ve realized that I really want to get to a Dorothy Sayers mystery (great choice, Tracy!) and from Brona’s she’s inspired me to move Willa Cather up my list. It would be fun one day to get together and choose common books to read from a number of blogs and perhaps do a massive read-along. In any case, thanks again! You always come up with such unique ideas!

      No thanks necessary….there are a few bloggers I follow closely and you are one on them.
      I may not always be in the comments list….but I am there! I have lined up some Greeks that I can squeeze in between classics. I never would have read Iliad, Ovid, Republic and Herodotus….without you! You inspire and don’t forget that when you feel at the end of the year you haven’t done enough! Not all progress can be traced in number of books read! Tracy has some great ‘vintage’ crime fiction that rank very high on literature lists. Brona just keeps me excited about Australian writers (favorite Thea Astely) that I never would have heard of!
      Hope you have a great summer reading…..and time to plan challenge for 2018, don’t wait till the last minute ( ..ha!)
