A Brief History of Montmaray Giveaway Winners

Thank you to all those readers who let us know about some of their favourite books. I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith was a particular favourite, although there were also a couple of fans of Steve Kluger’s My Most Excellent Year (which sounded like just my kind of book, until I read that it involved baseball). I must also agree with Maddy’s description of the extreme creepiness of The Owl Service by Alan Garner. I haven’t felt the same about owls (or plates with flower designs, or Welsh farms, for that matter) since I read it. I have added a few new books to my To Read list, and am seized with a desire to re-read Emil and the Detectives, which I think I read about thirty years ago.

Congratulations to Skye, Con and Sonia, who each won a signed copy of A Brief History of Montmaray.

    My Most Excellent Year doesn’t really have all that much baseball in it. I’m not a fan of the game myself and what baseball that was in it was more baseball history.

    1. Thanks for the e-mail, Con – your book is on its way!

      Oh, that’s good to hear about the lack of baseball. I don’t know much about baseball, especially American baseball, and I’m not all that keen on books about sport. It did otherwise sound like a great read, so I will have to track down a copy now.
