Birth Year Reading 2018

I rejoined J.G. for her most well-known group too, making me a member of all three!  It is my pleasure.  I was a prize-winner from her collection, which thrills me and delivered good news when I needed it.  I have several books ready and plan to read at least three.

Note that I work entirely with books we already own, in abundance in our home.  I don’t shop for 1972 literature.  The purpose of reading challenges is to enjoy books we own, with fun themes and relaxed scavenger hunts for sharing them.

I suggest that finding books in our birth year is amply specific.  J.G. allows switching to a relative’s birth year if we don’t have literature in ours.  It follows that securing even small books in our own, answers the mission accurately.  I have been retrieving more voluminous books from my collection, to guarantee fulfilling the wonderful prize criteria, in the meantime.

Here are the ones I have on hand!  Please visit for replies to comments, that I assure you are immediate and for review links added.  All of my reviews can be found in an alphabetized menu atop my blog.


Surfacing”  Margaret Atwood  1972
The Late Mrs. Fonsell”  Velda Johnston  1972
Nobody Likes Trina”  Phyllis A. Whitney  1972
The House Of Broken Dolls”  Dorothy Daniels  1972
Uncle Robert’s Secret”  Wylly Folk St. John  1972
Scuffy The Tugboat”  Tibor Gergely  1972

“The Seventh Sinner”  Elizabeth Peters  1972
I will not likely read this one because it is well into a series I have not started.

    Thank you for joining in and for your patient and welcoming bloggy friendship! You should have an e-mail from me (at last) by the time you read this.

    I’m impressed that you have so many books on hand from your birth year and can only imagine the richness of your library, based on that sample. I hope you enjoy reading them and sharing your thoughts!

    • Jane, you are welcome! Ron & I have a supply of actual books, to in the number that people have as e-book files in things like Kindles. Any reading theme of books I like, is truly a scavenger hunt we can answer at home!
