I’m out on my bed in the Aga room tonight being cosy, because it’s Guy Fawkes night and there are lots of noisy bangy things going on outside. I don’t like it, so Jane and I are having a quiet night in at the back of the house. And we thought that it was ages since we had a round of my game, and that it was time to have another go …
You might remember how it works from when we played before – once , twice, thrice, four times – but I’ll explain it again, just in case anyone has forgotten or anyone out there is new to this and would like to have a go.
We think of a person with a lovely blog, we pick five books from our shelves to represent that blogger, we take a picture and make a list, and then you get to guess who it is. We might have different editions or different translations, but we think we have picked the right books for each person.
It could be you! Have a guess in the comments! Or if you can’t guess have a look in the sidebar and follow a link to someone you haven’t met before. You might find an answer and you will definitely find a lovely blog.
Here’s the first one:
The Last Tresillans by J I M Stewart
Hons and Rebels by Jessica Mitford
The Poisoned Chocolates Case by Anthony Berkeley
William by E H Young
Corduroy by Adrian Bell
Next comes number two:
The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgarov
Merry Hall by Beverley Nichols
Jane and Prudence by Barbara Pym
If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino
She Knew She Was Right by Ivy Litvinov
And now here’s number three:
The Enchanted Places by Christopher Milne
The Persephone Book of Short Stories
Mr Fortune’s Maggot by Sylvia Townsend Warner
Miss Hargreaves by Frank Baker
A Red Herring Without Mustard by Alan Bradley
Now it’s time for you to do some guessing.
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.
But now it’s time for me to snuggle up and have a sleepy …
