B: BERTIE Wooster

Ah, British humour. I always think I got lost in the world of Bertie Wooster and Jeeves and Aunt Agatha and Glossop and all the rest. In fact, I revisit them often and they never fail to leave me refreshed and in a rather rummy frame of mind!

“And so the merry party began. It was one of those jolly, happy, bread-crumbling parties where you cough twice before you speak, and then decide not to say it after all.” 
― P.G. WodehouseMy Man Jeeves


  1. I've never really read any of the old British humour type things. I suppose in a way they can be funny because of how cringey there are!

  2. Oh, I love Jeeves and Wooster! About 30 years ago, I went on a major Wodehouse kick and read all his novels and stories of these two. His writing style is hilarious!

  3. I loved Agatha Christie as a young person and still have all her books - you've just inspired me to get them out again! ~Liz

    1. I'm so glad. My favourite one is "the secret of chimneys."

  4. What an awesome idea. Book friends! I love it and I'll be back. Thanks for sharing.
    Best Wishes

  5. I've never read the books, but I did enjoy the TV series :)

  6. I haven't read Agatha Christie in years. I used to devour her books.
