A Dog Blogs: Play Time!

2013-05-06_10-29-32_859Hello – it’s me, Briar!

I’m taking a break from my evening swim to bring you another round of my game, because we don’t seem to have played for a very long time.

This is how it works: I send Jane out into the garden to take pictures of different piles of books to represent different bookish bloggers.  And then  you can guess who they are.

If you want a bit of practice,  there are links to previous rounds – the questions and the answers – on my new page.

This time we have three very different readers from three very different continents.

Here’s the first one:


The Other Elizabeth Taylor by Nicola Beauman
South Riding by Winifred Holtby
Suite Française by Irène Néimovsky
The Post-Office Girl by Stefan Zweig
Gillespie and I by Jane Harris

(and there should have been A Dance to the Music of Time, but Jane couldn’t find it.)

Now for the second one:


Someone at a Distance by Dorothy Whipple
The Light-Hearted Quest by Ann Bridge
Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens
Murder at the Flood by Mabel Esther Allen
Decca: The Letters of Jessica Mitford

And here’s the last one for this round:


Oscar & Lucinda by Peter Carey
Sweet William by Beryl Bainbridge
The Crow Road by Ian Banks
The Game of Kings by Dorothy Dunnett
The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters by G W Dahlquist

That’s it!

How is the guessing going?

Remember, if you are stuck all three can be found our sidebar. So maybe if there’s a blog you don’t know you should click on it, because you might find an answer, and you might find somebody new to keep an eye on.

I will be back with the answers at the weekend, and Jane will be back to talk about books in a day or so.

      • Briar, thanks for understanding. I know the game is to recognize other people and I sort of gave it away, so I apologize. It’s just that I never manage to recognize anyone and I was so excited I couldn’t help myself!

  1. Hello Briar – a tricky round. I think No 2 might be Lyn @ I prefer reading but the the other two I’ll have to start checking around your side bar.

  2. I saw the pic (3) and knew it must be me! Thank you – I’m so chuffed to be featured. I must ask, seeing as you have the installments of the glass books – did you enjoy them?
