I'm a certain kind of Anglophile when it comes to reading, perhaps we can lay the blame firmly at Enid Blyton's door but give me a book about quiet British life in villages or even quiet British portraits in cities, not dating later than the '50s, and I'm hooked. Chronicles Of Fairacre is just that: fictional pen and ink sketches of a country school teacher's life. Miss Read is a pseudonym, but Dora Saint, the woman behind her, was exceedingly popular in her time, other people feeling just as I did about the coziness of her stories. #bookstagram #150in2017 #mrmbookclub #nowreading
