Lorna Fergusson’s 2017 Reading Challenge

Back in March 2017 Lorna Fergusson, author of the page-turning mystery The Chase and An Oxford Vengeance, announced her I’ve Got It, So I’ll Read It! (IGISIRI) reading challenge.

The Chase

Lorna is someone who I am very pleased to say has helped me enormously through her Fictionfire Literary Consultancy, describes IGISIRI as a simple project.  You randomly select two books a month to read from your own bookshelf.

I confess that, unless I’m on holiday, when I have been known to read 6 books in two weeks, I read very little.  Shame on me!  The last book I read was Stephen King’s On Writing and his words of wisdom often haunt me:

“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot. There’s no way around these two things that I’m aware of, no shortcut.”

So in an attempt to redeem myself and give myself a better chance of becoming a proper writer, I am definitely up for Lorna’s challenge and the two books I have grabbed for May are:

More Bad Housekeeping by Sue Limb

and

We – A Manifesto for Women Everywhere by acclaimed actress Gillian Anderson and journalist Jennifer Nadal.

The latter is a recent purchase which I have just started reading and Sue Limb’s More Bad Housekeeping is a part of her series of books featuring her wonderful character Dulcie Domum, who has always been close to my heart.

So … are you up to Lorna’s IGISIRI challenge?
