  1. Ah, more Gilbert, I see. I don’t blame you one bit; there’s a talented write. I’m glad to see some Aird here, too, Neeru; I think her series is sometimes under-rated. And you’ve reminded me I need to read some Wainwright (why are there always so many authors I haven’t explored yet?!). Well done on completing this challenge!

  2. Glad to see Catherine Aird on the list. I think this was a pick on Reading the Detectives too. I’ve read one book in that series and liked it very much. Haven’t managed to find copies of the others. I also want to read some Tagore stories soon. Have read Gora and Kabuliwala, but nothing else.

    1. Mallika, I read the book by Aird for the challenge and likedit very much. Unfortunately, haven’t been able to read anything else by her. And you have reminded me that I have a few books by Tagore on my Classics Club reading list, I better get down to them.
