Historical Tapestry Reading Swap

The five of us at Historical Tapestry have decided to have a reading swap. It's shaping up to be a lot of fun! We drew names and the chose a book for that person to read before the end of 2011. It is not like I need anymore books to read this year, but I thought it would be a fun idea.

It works out this way:
Teddy chooses for Alex
I choose for Marg
Marg chooses for Ana
Ana chooses for Teddy
Alex chooses for me

Alex chose Katherine by Anya Seton for me.
I have been meaning to read this book forever, so it is about time!

I chose Fingersmith for Marg and I am really excited to see what she thinks of it. I had thought she had read Sarah Waters before, but she hasn't, so it is about time she gave her a try. This was one of my favourite reads ever!

Then, Alex will be reading The Secret River chosen by Teddy. I haven't read this yet, but it is one I would like to get to in 2011.
Ana is reading The Winter Sea, one of my favourite reads from 2010, chosen by Marg.
Teddy will be reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, which was a favourite of mine from a few years back.

I am just as excited to see what everyone thinks of their chosen book as I am to see what I think of my book. It just worked out to include several of my favourite books, so I am curious to see what they think. To follow along you can visit Historical Tapestry over the next year.


  1. it's looking like you will have fun with that :o)

    the only one i've read is the Guernsey literary and potato peel pie society and I thought that book was fantastic!

  2. Sounds fun! I've only read The Guernsey Literary .... and Fingersmith but they are both 5 star reads in my book.

  3. Pat: It should be lots of fun. :)

    Nicola: Same here on the 5 star reads. I loved them both. :)
