Annabel's House of Books

Noli domo egredi, nisi librum habes – Never leave home without a book.

Guilty Secrets #3

When I started my blog just over a year ago, I wrote a couple of posts about things I haven’t read but should have. I’ve had so much to say since, I haven’t had much time to reflect further on the gaps in my reading.

Then this afternoon on Radio 4, they were talking about the Wodehouse appreciation society, and I realised I have never read a P.G.Wodehouse book! Moreover, I don’t even posess one in the TBR mountain range; whereas I own and love the complete Fry & Laurie Jeeves & Wooster on DVD. How can this be? How can I have missed reading one of the greatest funny writers ever?

Something to be rectified as soon as I’ve done my vampire bit for Halloween I think. Should I start with the first Jeeves & Wooster, or one of the Blandings, or indeed any other – What do you think?

  1. I read my first Wodehouse this year and only regret that it took me so long to find him. It was awesome! I read a random Jeeves & Wooster novel and was delighted by it, so I would recommend starting with the dynamic duo.If you're interested, I wrote about my thoughts here: http://www.stephandtonyinvestigate.com/?p=2162

  3. Oh Annabel I will be very interested to read your commentors replies as I have been wanting to read my first Wodehouse too but was dismayed by the enormity of the choice and gave up as I didn't know where on earth to start!

  5. Steph, Samantha, I'm glad to know I'm not alone. I think I shall start at the beginning of Jeeves – watch this space as they say!
