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
“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.

I would be thrilled for “Dread & Read” treats to be books I liked in your collection. The one about handwriting and water ones. I ran out of the gate in 2018 and finished two impressive entries already! Sincerely, Carolyn.
