What Vanda is reading now

What Vanda was reading then

30 years ago: Written on the Body by Jeanette Winterson (1992)

40 years ago: Three Guineas by Virginia Woolf (1938)

50 years ago: The Midwich Cuckoos by John Wyndham (1957)

How do I know what I was reading 50 years ago?

I've kept a list of all the books I've read since 1974. The Midwich Cuckoos is the first book on my list. 

Art Garfunkel has been keeping his book list since 1968.
