Read Scotland 2014 wrap-up

One of the challenges I did quite well at last year was Peggy's new Read Scotland 2014 challenge.

I signed up for The Hebridean level which was to read 9 to 12 books. In the event I actually managed to read 13, and these are they:

1. Consider Phlebas - Iain M Banks

2. Letters from the Horn of Africa - Sandy and Christian Curle

3. Sisters of Sinai - Janet Soskice

4. The Middle-aged Mountaineer - Jim Curran

5. Huntingtower - John Buchan

6. The Man in the Queue - Josephine Tey

7. The Fair MIss Fortune - D.E. Stevenson

8. Charlotte Fairlie - D.E. Stevenson

9. Lorraine Kelly's Scotland - Lorraine Kelly

10. A Shilling for Candles - Josephine Tey

11. Tea Time for the Traditionally Built - Alexander McCall Smith

12. Letters from Skye - Jessiac Brockmole

13. The Hills is Lonely - Lilian Beckwith

A nice mixed bag of titles, some fiction and some non-fiction and I enjoyed each and every one. Many thanks to Peggy for hosting this new challenge and for doing it so well.

You did well on this challenge. I don't remember how many I did and I have not done a wrap up post. I aimed at the lowest level so as not to stress myself. I will be doing it again because I have so many books that I want to read that fits the challenge.

I should set myself a personal DES challenge. Wouldn't it be fun to read her for a whole year?!

Cath said...

Thanks, Tracy! Good luck with doing the challenge again this year.

Nan: I think a personal DES challenge would be delightful. I have to search for more of her books this year.

A very eclectic group of books Cath! Glad you enjoyed it!

Cath said...

Thanks Peggy!

I think you can give yourself a real pat on the back for the way you ran your first challenge. Some people announce them and just disappear. You were always around commenting on peoples' posts, running the Goodreads group, and really doing a sterling job. :-)
