I am rejoining J.G. for her most well-known reading group too, making me a member of all three! It is my pleasure. I was a prize-winner of a book from her collection, which thrills me and which was good news when I needed it. I hae 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.
One consideration I suggest, is that finding a book in our birth year is specific enough, that their page number shouldn’t matter. J.G. allows switching to a relative’s birth year if we don’t have literature in ours, so it follows that securing even small books in our own, answers the mission more accurately. I’m speaking of the whole prize tally, the overall description. We do list all of our books of any size, outside the grand prize draw.
Here are the ones I have on hand! Please visit again, for replies to comments, that I assure you are quite immediate and for review links I add, to finished books. All of my reviews can be found in an alphabetized menu at the top of my blog.
“Scuffy The Tugboat” Tibor Gergely 1972
“Surfacing” Margaret Atwood 1972
“The Late Mrs. Fonsell” Velda Johnston 1972
“Uncle Robert’s Secret” Wylly Folk St. John 1972
“Nobody Likes Trina” Phyllis A. Whitney 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.

Jane: short of mailing a postal letter, I’ve been endeavouring to let you know communications have been missed. Among my WordPress comment boxes as well as e-mail. Using blogspot is too hard, as you know. I will give the address to use and erase it when you know it: RonCar[at]Prairie[dot]ca. I can’t tell how often you check e-mail. Further, Prairie has been rejected, unless folks write to me there first. Please send any old note, then I will forward what you missed. If you search your junk folder for my Prairie e-mail address, you should find the two you missed. One of them thanks you for your package!
I hope you got the note at Gmail, specifying”The Soul Of The Octopus”. The day you asked me to review all of the Orion titles! I went through all of them thoroughly and was stunned you missed that e-mail. Relieved you waited for me to repeat my selection! I’d also like to know if you found “Service For Two”, so I can continue asking other people to help find a good copy. In lieu of that, I said I would be thrilled for my “Dread & Read” treats to be other books I liked in your second-hand collection instead. The one about handwriting and eithe rof the water ones.
Also, please note that “Dread & Read” was joined a while ago and my post looks forward to your welcome blessing. Hehehe! I ran out of the gate in 2018 and have finished two impressive entries already! I will erase these personal bits when I know I have finally reached you. Sincerely, Carolyn.
