How Many Books Have You Read In The Last Year. by BookWormWizard on 31 August 2003 12:28pm
 
I thought it may be a good idea to tell everyone how many books you have read in the last year,Since last November I have 22 books(not bad for someone who read his first ever book last November)...I wanted too list here all 22 books,but I thought that Id check with my fellow Palinites to see if they thought that It was a good idea..Id really love to rae all of your lists...David

hi,

"Life Of Michael" by Jeremy Novik is the best biography of Michael Palin in my opinion. It's full great pictures and interesting interviews!

Hiya bookworms:^}

I totally agree with Sophie-Lou about the Novick bio of Michael. Even he (Michael that is) has said that it's a much more 'rounded' book than the one a few years ago by Jonathan Margolis.

Here's my list:

Sahara - M. Palin

Life Of Michael - J. Novick

Re - read all of The Travels , 80 Days, Pole to Pole etc...

Debussy Remembered - (letters, correspondance and compositional notes)

Wild Swans - Jung Chang (this book is extraordinary and incredibly moving. The true story of a Grandmother, Mother and Daughter living in China before, during and after Communisim and the Cultural Revolution.)

Billy - Pamela Stephenson

A Collection of Dickens' Short Stories

Dear John - Joan Le Mesurier

Jude The Obscure - Thomas Hardy

The Woodlanders - Thomas Hardy

The First 200 years of Monty Python - Kim 'Howard' Johnson

Life Before And After Monty Python - Kim 'Howard' Johnson

Life Of Python - Geprge Perry

Monty Python Speaks - can't remember the author!

Monty Python's Big Red Book

The Shelters Of Stone - Jean M. Auel

Forbidden Archeology - I'll think of the name in a minute!! :^} Damn these pre-senior moments!!!

and for a bit of light relief..

Laura Ashley's Book Of Home Decorating

Ellen x

Still can't remember that b#$%*@ name!!!

AAAAAAARGH!!
