December 2022: Lorna Doone by RD Blackmore (1869)

Wild misty moorland, charming highwaymen, rogues and murderers trounced and right and virtue wins out in the end. Great escapism!

What Vanda was reading

30 years ago: Kalki by Gore Vidal (1978)

40 years ago: Through the Narrow Gate by Karen Armstrong  (1981)

How do I know what I was reading 40 years ago?

I've kept a list of all the books I've read since 1974.

Art Garfunkel has been keeping his book list since 1968. Take a look.
