  1. My result is “The Talented Mr. Ripley” by Patricia Highsmith. Not too long a book which fits in well with my other challenges at this time of the year.

  2. I’m thrilled that it spun one of the books on my list that is an actual physical book (& not one the out-of-print classics on my eReader). Myself When Young | Henry Handel Richardson is HRR’s autobiography published posthumously in 1948. According to the blurb at Text Publishing it is a,

    “frank and engaging account of her childhood living in the post offices of various rural towns, her adolescence at boarding school in Melbourne that would form the basis of her much loved novel The Getting of Wisdom, her time in Leipzig studying music and her early years of marriage. With insights into the inspiration for some of her most famous characters, and comments on the response to her depiction of those characters and events following the publication of her early novels, Myself When Young is not only a marvellous account of a life, but a fascinating companion to the fictional works of one of our greatest novelists.”

    And just in time for AusReadingMonth in November –

  3. Aargh, as usual the Spin has found the lurking monster – The Young Lions, 800 pages about people fighting in WW2. Oh well, it’s my own fault for putting it on the list. The chances of me actually reading and reviewing it by the deadline are vanishingly small… 😉 Well done to all those who got a good result!

  4. The book I got was The Moviegoer by Walker Percy. So I am happy with the choice. I have long been curious about his writing and it is set in New Orleans. And it is short, 200 pages or under.

    1. I read this long ago and the details are fuzzy, but I remember liking it a great deal and have since tried other Percy books which I liked but which (for me) lacked the magic of this one. I hope you enjoy it!


      1. Mary, I am glad you enjoyed it. I hope I will too. My husband likes his books and another blogger did also so I think I will.


    1. I loved this when I read it in my twenties during my E M Forster phase. Attitudes are of its time, as they say, although Forster was critical of the role that the British played in India. Good luck

    1. I recently finished Shadow on the Rock which reminded me how much I love Cather’s work. This one is on my TBR list. I hope you enjoy it!

  5. Number 12 on my list is The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir. I started it in late September as a “book I’m afraid” of challenge for #unreadshelfproject2021 an it has been tough going. I’m taking this as a sign that I should push on and that I now get until December to finish it instead of by the end of October.

  6. I will be reading The Trumpet-Major by Thomas Hardy. It is sooooo long since I have read anything by him, so am looking forward to this one very much

  7. How fortuitous! I got The Haunting of Hill House. I had already read a couple of horror stories (or so I thought), for the Halloween season, but I was disappointed in both. I think this should fit the bill. I’m going to set aside my current read, so I can complete Hill House by Halloween.
