This is Monday's update to yesterday's post -- changes in blue and red.
MSRW has been a roaring success. So far I have counted 79 reviews, covering all but one of the novels (The Mandelbaum Gate -- wish I had a copy as I'd have read it myself -- don't like to see it being left out!). And of course there have also been many interesting comments from non-bloggers telling us what they have read this week. If the purpose was to get people reading some of the lesser known novels, or re-reading the better-known ones, we have definitely succeeded. Speaking for myself I am going to go on with Spark as there are several novels I now really want to read.
Here's the score as far as Simon and I have managed to compile it. If you have reviewed something which doesn't appear on this list, please let us know.
Statistics -- things have changed since I posted yesterday. There's now an out and out winner, with 8 reviews -- A Far Cry from Kensington. There's a tie for second place, with Loitering with Intent, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Girls of Slender Means and The Driver's Seat having six reviews each. The Finishing School and Memento Mori got five each. Four each for The Abbess of Crewe, and Territorial Rights. Three for Robinson and The Ballad of Peckham Rye, two for The Takeover, The Bachelors, The Hothouse by the East River, and The Only Problem, and one each for all the others. This could still change of course. But anyway, well done everybody and do send us any late additions! More from Simon today and maybe more from me too.
