The list author says: "Finding wonderful books on your own is an adventure. It is so rewarding to go to a bookstore or search online or trip across a mention of a wonderful read and follow it up. That's what led to this list after I found out that Margery Sharp ("Cluny Brown") was incredibly prolific throughout her lifetime. Even this list is not the place to really look for books, but it may be a start."
"Start at the beginning with number "One" and go from there. Although books are very quick reads and then there is at least a six month wait before the next, if you start now you won't have that problem as Evanovich has written One through Sixteen with a number of filler books in between. BTW, for Jersey Girls like me, they take place in a fanciful version of Trenton."
"The earliest of the modern world-builder biographies that I ever read. Written in the 1970s, once you read it you will know that Robert Moses was the role-model for so many politicians of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Is this good or bad?"
"Start with this one and go from there. Read all about Mrs. Lucas, Miss Mapp and all of that ilk. But don't stop there. Benson was another prolific Brit and wrote quite a few rather odd stories as well as any number of what he called "spook stories.""
