My TBR Rainbow: #10 The Medal Edit

Congratulations to all our Olympians who took part in Rio

In celebration, I made a pile of gold, silver and bronze-spined books from my TBR.

P1040168 (768x1024)

I chose the three volumes of HP Lovecraft’s weird tales to represent the silver incarnation of Penguin Modern Classics between 2000 and 2007, of which I have many. Interestingly, all the gold paperbacks I have are not terribly shiny, but I could only find one bronze book spine – one of the few by Le Carré I haven’t read.

I must dip into the Folio Book of Short Novels – this anthology collects (with beautiful illustrations) Henry James: The Turn of the screw; Jack London: The Call of the Wild; Thomas Mann: Death in Venice; D.H. Lawrence: The Virgin and the Gipsy; Collete: Gigi into one volume of treats – I’ve only read the Jack London as a child.

Good Luck to all our Para-Olympians too!

    I do enjoy browsing your rainbow-coloured TBR stacks, Annabel. Of the books in today’s pile, I’ve only read The Gift of Rain. It’s good, although I’m struggling to remember much about it now. I preferred another of his novels, The Garden of Evening Mists, which might be in your ‘green’ TBR pile if you haven’t read it already!
