And so, as February begins, so does another challenge and I returned home this evening with a weighty load and a somewhat lighter purse to begin my second book quest of the year. After many recommendations and, of course, taking into account the length of each book and the time in which I have to read them, I have chosen the five books from the BBC’s Big Read which I hope to tick off my list this month. They are:
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahld
Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
On the Road by Jack Kerouac
The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot

As always, please feel free to leave comments, suggestions and book recommendations!
