2004/05/10 17:45:00 - Books! (I)
Since I've been finding at least some of the posts by people about books they've been reading interesting, and it would be nice to know how many books I read in a year I've decided to start tracking myself, starting at 1/5/4. So, without further ado...

3) Jo Returns to the Chalet School -- Elinor M Brent-Dyer
4) The New Chalet School -- Elinor M Brent-Dyer
5) A United Chalet School -- Elinor M Brent-Dyer
6) The Chalet School in Exile -- Elinor M Brent-Dyer
7) The Chalet School at War -- Elinor M Brent-Dyer
8) The Highland Twins at the Chalet School -- Elinor M Brent-Dyer
9) Lavender Leigh at the Chalet School -- Elinor M Brent-Dyer
10) Gay Lambert at the Chalet School -- Elinor M Brent-Dyer

These eight books track the progress of the Chalet School from their founding girl (Josephine Bettany, the Jo of the title of the first of these) departing the school as a pupil (but returning at times to teach), through a fraught escape before the Nazis and the Anschluss to Guernsey, then a further flight as the war approaches, ending up in Wales.

By this point, the plots are getting a bit repetitive, but I was still finding them fun to read.

Have I missed ##1,2? Or have they been censored?

1 and 2 are both parts of trilogies where the other books will have higher numbers, and I'll fill them all in together.

Chalet Books are fun. I have a complete set in Cambridge if you wish to read some before your next trip to Newark (although apart from the first 4 they're paperbacks and therefore abridged). I've read them far too many times.
