My Life in Books: Round-up!

Well, I hope you enjoyed that, I certainly did.  Don't forget to go back and comment on the posts this week (I always get overly protective when I feature other people!)  - and I'd love to know which recommended book you're now most keen to read?

I thought I'd link to all thirty (thirty!) of the bloggers and blog-readers who have participated in My Life in Books in Series One and Series Two.  This is set up so that clicking on the person's name takes you to their blog (if they have one) and clicking on the 'Life in Books' bit takes you to the post where they were featured.

Tomorrow, back to normal - which I hope won't be anti-climactic!  Coming up there will be a re-read that was much better the second time around, a brilliant sequel, and a book I really wish I hadn't read.  Intriguing, no?

Series One

Karen and Susan's Life in Books
Lyn and Our Vicar's Wife/Anne's Life in Books
Lisa and Victoria's Life in Books
Darlene and Our Vicar/Peter's Life in Books
Annabel  and Thomas's Life in Books
David and Elaine's Life in Books
Harriet and Nancy's  Life in Books

Series Two

Rachel and Teresa's Life in Books
Claire and Colin's Life in Books
Hayley and Karyn's Life in Books
Jenny and Kim's Life in Books 
Danielle and Sakura's Life in Books
Claire B and Nymeth/Ana's Life in Books
Gav and Polly's Life in Books
Eva and Simon S's Life in Books

  7. It has been a wonderful series to anticipate and then read Simon, and it was lovely to be asked to take part. And Rebecca - it is one of the hundreds of unread Penguins I own. It may be time to read it.

    1. Oh, and I meant to say, of course you coming back will be the opposite of anticlimactic. :p Your teasers have me curious!

    2. Lovely thing to say! I can't often think of teasers, nor am I often prepared enough to drop them, but this time it seemed right...

  12. I have really enjoyed this series. I actually took the questions and emailed them to my non-blogging, book-loving friends and got some really great results. Thanks so much Simon for organizing this!

    1. oh brilliant! I should circulate amongst my academic friends... it would be interesting to see how they ended up studying English. I bet Enid Blyton helped quite a few of them on their way!

  13. I found out about these series through Kim's tweets and I've started reading and it feels like finding a Treasure Island, knowing all new books and other bits and pieces and I love the first question and curious to know what's everyone's favorite of their childhood reads.
    Many Thanks for the Joy.
