Wow, that's a lovely haul. With Steinbeck, start with Cannery Row and Tortilla Flat. And The Inheritors is wonderful. The idea of a COMEDY by Brigid Brophy has me intrigued. And I need to give The Towers of Trebizond another go, having stalled at page 30...

That seems the right amount of books. For a start.

When my classroom was refurbished last term the maintenance department told me I should look on it as 'an opportunity to get rid of all those books.' I like the sound of the book of aphorisms; I recently came across a compendium of proverbs from 1640, and have been working steadily through them - only to discover that none of my students actually knew what 'a rolling stone gathers no moss' means (only a handful of them had heard the phrase)- so I may be aiming too high.
