  3. I read Pamela by Samuel Richardson. It is genuinely the worst book I've ever read.

  4. My first John Steinbeck novel. It was quite poignant and sad, although others call it hopeful. Still, I liked it a lot. I may need to re-read it and ponder it more.

  5. The Leopard by Giuseppe di Lampedusa. Since he only wrote one novel and I hadn't read it, he was going to be new, I guess! I thought it was really good, so thanks for the prod to read it!

  6. I read A Bell for Adano by John Hersey. This book won the 1945 Pulitzer Prize for Novel. It was a light-hearted read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  7. I read The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie. It was so good and I've now gone on to read a couple more books by Christie. I don't know why I waited so long to read her...

  8. I read "Right Ho, Jeeves." I've never read Wodehouse before and heard he was hilarious so I thought I'd give Jeeves a shot.

  9. As I do, I bought this book because it was published by Virago. I had never heard of the author which is not surprising because this is the only novel she wrote. It's wonderful. I feel blessed by the category "By an Author New to You." It could so easily have been left on my TBR shelf. I think it is the best book I have read this year.
