Naughty little reader

A nice little thing Cara Bristol has on her blog is a reading list where she catalogues books she has read. I'm not above pinching good ideas, so I thought it might be nice to write now and then about things I've read myself. I can't (as far as I know) have a separate page like Cara does, so I'll just post them here.

I'm quite an eclectic reader, which you will no doubt deduce from the ten books I'm listing (in no particular order) for starters...

Philippa Gregory, The Virgin's Lover
Clare Dudman, 98 Reasons for Being
Philip Kemp, Blushing at Both Ends
Jeanette Winterson, The PowerBook
Enid Blyton, The Naughtiest Girl in the School
Judy Parkinson, Spilling the Beans on the Cat's Pyjamas
Angela Carter, The Bloody Chamber
Umberto Eco, Serendipities
Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin
James Lipton, An Exaltation of Larks

Have any devoted Hasler-watchers read any of these? If you have, I'd love to hear what you made of them.

Oh, and incidentally (courtesy of the last book on the list), did you know that the collective term for sadomasochists is a 'rack'? :-)

Naughty thought... I'll have to list ten very naughty books next time; books that a good little girl like me shouldn't be reading...

...I wonder what you would do, for example, if you caught me reading this?

  1. I have never read any material mentioned *what i did find odd however* was the fact that when i first found your blog and came down the list of entries to this particular one is that on my study wall i have the very same picture in a gold coloured frame as the one accompanying this entry of the woman in a yellow dress reading a book the frame being about 9 inch by 6 inch chances of that happening are like trying to pick a winning lottery ticket most odd indeed.
