Hello bookish friends! It’s me – Briar!
Are you enjoying Margaret Kennedy Reading Week?
I am! Because Jane had some annual leave to use up before the end of the year and she took it this week. So I have had extra company and we have had some trips out into the country for special walks. I am a happy dog!
(Jane said I should show you this picture even though I’m not very big in it, because in the background is a literary landmark to do with one of the books you will see a little further down.)
I wanted to do something for the week, and so I should do a special round of my game. Do you remember how it works? We pick a person and we take a photograph of five books to represent them. Then you have to guess who they are.
Here’s a link to an previous game, if you want to see how it’s done.
This time we have picked people who are joining in Margaret Kennedy Reading Week, and each of them has a Margaret Kennedy book that they have read or are reading now in their pile of books.
Some of them have played the game, some of them have been answers in the game before, and you should be able to find links to all of them around the blog.
So let’s play!
Here’s the first:
To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf
Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
The Ladies of Lyndon by Mararet Kennedy
Miss Buncle’s Book by D E Stevenson
Consider the Fork by Bee Wilson

Merry Hall by Beverley Nichols

You can tell me your answers in the comments and I’ll be along later to tell you if you’re right and to chat a bit.
If you’re the first person to get one of answers you will get a bonus entry in our prize draw, which will be coming along later in the week. You can guess yourself if you want.
So let’s go !!!
Oooh what fun Briar – can I guess at no. 2?????? :))))))))
Yes – please do!!
Well, I think it has to be me….. 🙂
She beat me to it – number 2 is *surely* Kaggsy! And I think no 5 is Darlene of cosybooks, as I remember at least a couple of these.
Yes, you’re quite right.
I think number 3 is you ?!?!?
The Trollope gave you away 😉😉
If number 4 isn’t me then it’s someone with very similar taste. 🙂
It is you – we wouldn’t be so sneaky as to have books that might fit more than one person we know.
I am guessing No. 1 is Audrey from ‘books as food’? 🙂
Yes, it is!
What breed of dog is Bramble?She is cute and i say that as a non dog owner.
She’s a border terrier. A rather scruffier one than you’ll see in most pictures, but that’s because she’s a happy, outdoor action dog!
I think I recognize number 1 too (thanks, Michelle!) but I wish I could be all of the others! Thanks, Briar!
It’s always good when people recognise themselves!
I think #1 is Audrey as well, and I did wonder if #3 was Jane. I know I’ve read about The Love-Charm of Bombs somewhere recently but I can’t remember where. Thanks for another fun round!
Yes, you’re right.
Oh, wait, I think number 5 is Darlene at Cosy Books. I KNEW I wished I could be all five!
Yes, you’ve got it!
Hi Briar – sounds as if you and Jane are having a lovely week. I seem to have missed this round of guessing as everyone else has got the answers while I was sleeping.
This round went very quickly Cat, because it was a greatest hits kind of thing. But we know you’re particularly good at this game …
Always happy to see Briar. :o)
Well done for getting all of the answers!
The first ones in and the people getting extra entries in the prize draw are:
Kaggsy, for guessing that she was number 2.
Vicki, for spotting that Darlene of Cosy Books was number 5
Helen of Mad About the Books for spotting that Jane was number 3.
Helen of She Reads Novels for realising that she was number 4.
Michelle for working out the Audrey was number 1.
We will be making the draw tomorrow evening.
Love Briar x
