Well, who'd a thowt it? A splendid 5, there, although #3 made me think a while, before W. Somerset Maugham beat George Orwell in the tinker-tailor cycle . . . you remember the one, 'Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief'? . . . always managed to come up trumps! 🤗

4/5 

Missed Q2 

Q5 made me stop and think, the late 70’s and early 80’s were a bit hazy ….. maybe it was me 🤔

2 out of 5, not enough Winnie the Pooh novels for my liking.☹️

I always took you to be more of a fan of the 'Famous 5' novels by Enid Blyton. 🤔

Currently reading Frank Skinner’s autobiography …… again .

I think “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” might be one to get onto your Kindle, DM. 😁
