Year One Book Reviews

As promised, the first year of book reviews is posted below! From now on there will be a link in the left-hand column. Thanks so much, Ber, for asking whether sketches would be treated with a similar post – I hadn’t thought of it, but will get onto it soon…

Speaking of sketches, thought I’d give away a very little birthday present – I’ll pop the ‘Book Reviews Made Easy’ sketch in the post to someone, as a souvenir. If you’d like it, just comment in the comments – shall we say a couple of days to enter? It’s only, as Elaine at Random Jottings would say, a Bijou Prizerette.

Have just made a coconut cake, which can be considered a birthday cake…

    Coconut cake, Mmmmmmmmm… Enjoy!
    Many happy returns on Your Day and congrats on your first year – so glad your site is here (for our enjoyment).

    Bijou Prizerette? Oooo… Another drawing? Put my name in, please. Thanks.

    Here’s my name for the Bijou Prizerette too … and what an impressive (and neat – in all senses) Year One review list. (Also love the Jane Austen option on the sketch … ).

    Can’t tell you how often I’ve visited and enjoyed your reviews and views!

    I’m still looking for a good contemporary novel to teach my British Lit students. It’s a three-year project and will get more serious about it during the summer.

    Love the list you made and I’ll be back to peruse it, for sure.

    A couple weeks ago I started a reading blog and am having fun designing it and figuring out exactly what I want it to be. So far it’s pretty basic.

    Very many happy returns! Please include my name, too, I love the sketch. Having a book token in hand, I’m about to peruse the Year One list for something to spend it on.
