Twenty-five books read and documented here. Thirty more to go for 55@55. Here’s what’s on my reading list:

Every Day Is Mother’s Day, Hilary Mantel, author of Wolf Hall
Just read a review in The New Yorker of Wolf Hall and its just-published sequel, Bring Up the Bodies. Might as well add it to my list…

Bring Up the Bodies, Mantel

The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb, Melanie Benjamin

Elegy for Eddie, latest in the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear

A Tale of Two Cities, Dickens (haven’t made much headway, yet)

Saints and Sinners, Edna O’Brien (more Irish lit)
