I got looking at The Reading Thing and immediately thought : GREAT! A ton of these are British!
Eh. Not so much.
A ton of them are SET in the UK but written by "others."
I only have eight British authors on the Thing!
- Agatha Christie
- Rhys Bowen
- Carola Dunn
- Catriona McPherson
- Claire North
- Josephine Tey
- Nicola Upson
- Jacqueline Winspear
Luckily, though, the challenge is to read 12 books by British authors .... and since I'm lined up to read the first 18 Hercule Poirot novels over the course of the year (if all goes as planned), I should have this in the bag!
The way it looks now my tally will look like this:
- Agatha Christie - 18
- Rhys Bowen - 2
- Carola Dunn - 2 (3 if you count the one I'm reading now and likely won't finish until next year)
- Catriona McPherson - 2
- Claire North - 1
- Josephine Tey - 1
- Nicola Upson - 1
- Jacqueline Winspear - 1
28 total (or 29). Not too shabby. Of course, this IS assuming I read consistently .... and a wee bit faster than I have in 2014.
