2005 wasn’t a great year for reading. Not for me, that is. Somehow I only managed to compile a top five of the year, since nothing else I’d read qualified… shame. It was the first full year of university, and I suppose that meant I read mainly chapters of things and so forth. Did get through Ulysses, but that didn’t come close to making the top 5, believe you me… anyway, without further ado:
5. Lady Into Fox – David Garnett
Which I talked about here…
4. Jacob’s Room – Virginia Woolf
Ginny strikes again.
3. The Mill on the Floss – George Eliot
Still the only Eliot I’ve finished, and surprised I only placed this at number three, since it’s one of my favourite novels. Very strange title, if you think about it.
2. The Long Afternoon – Giles Waterfield
Angela sent this out on the dovegreybooks postal book group, and I thank her for it. Look out for it in my 50 Books…
1. Blind Man’s Buff – Richmal Crompton
Must eulogise about Ms. Crompton at greater length, one of these days…
