Many of the books I read are parts of a series - usually, but not always, mystery series.
I'd like to try to complete some of the series - some I have no intention of revisiting.
This blog is a way for me to keep a record of the books I've read and the ones I've yet to try.
And anyway, I've always loved making lists.

  1. Reading all of Angela has been this summer's quest and I have just one left...The Brandons!

  2. Very useful list as I am starring to read the series. Thank you

  3. Thank you for making these lists. I've been a fan of Angela Thirkell for many years and I also read other authors you list. I've been rereading Angela Thirkell now that many of the titles are being republished. I still love her dry humor and wonderful characters. I've bookmarked your blog and will take a look at some of the authors I'm not familiar with. Thanks again!
