Wodehouse Reading Challenge

The Wodehouse Reading Challenge is hosted by me!  I have been reading a little P.G. Wodehouse and decided that I wanted to read ALL the Wodehouse I could and I thought others might want to join me.  So I created a dedicated blog for it.  I'll review here but all the linkies will be over there.  The challenge starts December 1.

My goal is to read the entire Blandings Castle series in 2011 which includes 11 novels and 9 short stories.

     "The Custody of the Pumpkin"
     "Lord Emsworth Acts for the Best"

  1. I really need to find something by Wodehouse that works for me. Perhaps i should try listening to one. The two I tried to read felt like they'd be better in audio, and i didn't have the patience for them to fully capture the voices.

  2. I'm ashamed to admit. I've never heard of Wodehouse.

  3. @Amanda - Maybe it's because my mom has always watched those PBS British shows and now loves the BBC America, but I find them so funny. But I'm thinking I will have to get some on audio. I listed to one years ago and it was really very well done, but I can't remember what it was.

    @Juju - That's ok.

  4. Like Juju I never heard of these books before. Good luck with your challenge!
