Last night's book was The Case of the Late Pig by Margery Alllingham. This was written in 1937 and is rather dated in some parts but the story is intriguing and the characters well developed. There is a convincing depiction of the protagonist's reaction to coming across the boy who had savagely bullied him at school. The character of Albert Campion is supposed to be a parody of Dorothy L Sayers's Lord Peter Wimsey, so there is another detective for me to investigate. One book seems to lead to another very often in this book a day scheme.
Is it possible to read a book a day, every day? I've finished my year-long project now and I would say that for me, no, it isn't possible to read a whole book EVERY single day. Real life does get in the way, or the book is just too long to complete in the evening after work. However, it looks like it is possible to read an AVERAGE of one book a day for a year, because you can catch up on your reading on weekends and holidays. So in those terms, I kept on track - and I also kept my reading choices eclectic!
