As some of you may know, I was recently on the other side of the world, on holiday*. While away, Nina and David set about doing some of those things that have needed doing for some years. Dusting, for instance.
The main change was to try to collect most books by local authors in one place on a bookshelf. There we now have Henry Porter, Jane Bailey, Rebecca Tope, Veronica Stallwood, Anne Grangerand guest author, Lesley Cookman, as well as books of local interest.
Of course, that left M C Beaton's Agatha Raisin books rather hidden in comparison so we devoted four shelves to her books where they were easier to see. (Room enough for her Hamish Macbeth series and the two new sets of books by her too)
This left space for us to order in some more 'literary' novels to be grouped together. Such titles as Snow Geese by William Feinnes, Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold, A Life of Pi by Yann Martell and Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky as well as works by Hemmingway, Cormac McCarthy and Arundhati Roy and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. We have called this book case'Literary Fiction (mostly!)' so please feel free to disagree with our choices.
