Today is my birthday and most of my presents were books – if you saw my last blog post then you’ll know that’s a good thing! I asked specifically for some of them, and I also had a few ‘how-to-write’ books from Mum that look interesting. I was given a pile of books for Christmas as well…I’ve been reading one every couple of days! I’m trying to finish as many as possible before ‘normal life’ returns.
Here are the books I received today:
Cider With Rosie – Laurie Lee
Brideshead Revisited – Evelyn Waugh
The Color Purple – Alice Walker
The Fault in Our Stars – John Green
Wives and Daughters – Elizabeth Gaskell
The Last Waltz – John Suchet
On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft – Stephen King
On Becoming a Novelist – John Gardner
The Artist’s Way – Julia Cameron
The Elements of Style – William Strunk Jr. (That one was concise; I read it after lunch!)
Have you read any of these? Right, I’d better get going before my pile of books reaches the ceiling!
