On My Bookshelf, No. 15

This is my bookshelf.


Here is a snippet of what’s on it.


They Knew Mr. Knight (1934) by Dorothy Whipple

Frost in May (1933) by Antonia White

Greenbanks (1932) by Dorothy Whipple

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (1938) by Winifred Watson

The Hundred Secret Senses (1995) by Amy Tan

The Pearl (1947) by John Steinbeck

Love, Lucy (1996) by Lucille Ball

A Book (1977) by Desi Arnaz

This is the end of this particular bookshelf, and as you can see the titles are not in alphabetical order by author, as the ceiling slants down and this space only fits smaller books.

I will continue the series with the other shelves in my home.

Have you read any of these?

  1. I’ve only read The Pearl – so long ago. But, I remember liking it. I have Miss Pettigrew, but haven’t read it yet. I’ve never read Dorothy Whipple – would you recommend her?

    1. Yes, I would recommend Whipple! I wrote my master’s thesis about her book The Priory and I think she deserves more recognition that she has gotten. Her books are really fun!

  2. Gosh, just in the last few months I read They Knew Mr. Knight, Greenbanks, and Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day. I haven’t reviewed Mr. Knight or Miss Pettigrew yet!

  3. I really must reread The Pearl! It’s been 45 years. Yikes! Time flies when you’re havin’ fun! 🙂 I love your I Love Lucy post! I can imagine learning more about her and Desi is definitely rewarding! The Hundred Secret Senses has been recommended to me but I’ve not gotten to it yet, though I do own it! 😀

  4. ‘The Pearl’ is a Steinbeck novel I have not read. When at school we read ‘The Red Pony’ and ‘Of Mice and Men’. I love to see posts of bookshelves. 🙂

  5. I love those little Steinbeck novellas! Have you read Tortilla Flats? Also a good one (and Of Mice and Men is a must, though you’ve probably read it already). If you want to have more fun with books, check out my scene re-creations over at aliteralinterpretation.wordpress.com You won’t regret it!
