Asterisked books were rereads.

Wow, I made it to fifty, most likely a new league record for me. Certainly it's the most I've managed to get through by far since I started keeping these lists. I read Sharpe's Skirmish today. It's very short, a novella, but it was a good way to get back into that world after a long time away. Plus I'm also about a quarter of the way through Sharpe's Company.

Ringo: Books are good.
Grandfather: *Parading's* better.
Ringo: Parading?
Grandfather: [nods eagerly] Parading the streets! Trailing your coat! Bowling along! LIVING!
Ringo: Well, I am living.
Grandfather: You? Living? When was the last time you gave a girl a pink-edged daisy? When did you last embarrass a sheila with your cool, appraising stare?
Ringo: You're a bit old for that sort of chat, aren't you?
Grandfather: Well at least I've got a backlog of memories! All you've got is - THAT BOOK!
