#bookaday Days 11-15
#11 Second hand bookshop gem.
I found this at a second hand book shop in Holland. Link to my review .
#12 I pretend to have read it.
The Jewel in the Crown by Paul Scott. I loved the mini-series set in the British Raj but could never get into the book for some reason.
#13 Makes me laugh.
Wodehouse is fantastic! This hilarious madcap shipboard comedy of misunderstandings is really a gem.
#14 An old favorite.
It's been about 20 years since I first read The Secret History by Donna Tartt but I still consider it one of my favorite books. Strangely enough, I didn't really care for her other two novels, The Little Friend and The Goldfinch.
#15 Favorite fictional father.
Mr.Bennett of course from Pride and Prejudice!
