State of the Blog: Part Two, the Authors

Spring has finally come to Portland, with our first really warm and sunny day after weeks of freaky cold and snow.  Now, if only I could be outside instead of in here doing my taxes!

Four times a year, I review the books I've read to that point and see what kind of progress I've made on my books lists and reading projects.  2012 is still in its early days, so I haven't made much progress yet.  But with all the challenges I joined this year, I have made some.

This is the second of three quarterly blog assessment posts.  The first part addressed the book lists. Part Three will deal with the challenges I joined this year.

My lists of my favorite authors are over in the right-side column. These are now divided into General favorites and Mystery favorites.

NOTE: If you are working on any of these lists, please leave a comment here or on the post for the list (click on the title below or in the right-hand column) and leave a link to any related post. I will add the links on the list post.

So far in 2012, I have only read the following five books by my favorite authors. I'm listening to another Dick Francis book now, so it is easy to see that I am in a mystery mood.


GENERAL FAVORITES



MYSTERY FAVORITES

Hi Gilion,

Dick Francis and P.D. James are two of my favourite authors, although many of the books I have read by both of them were done so before I started blogging so I don't have any reviews posted for them.

I have got one P.D. James review in the pipeline and that is for a book titled 'Children Of Men' which is a little different to her usual style, but I found to be a brilliant dystopian read.

I shall watch your further updates with interest.

Yvonne
