I don't have a tbr pile. Too many unread books are a source of stress to me! I prefer to have just one book waiting. Right now I'm reading The Song of the Lark by Willa Cather (another big pbk with 500+ pages). I have Rosamond Lehmann waiting and the Sarah Orne Jewett on order.
I noticed in the Daily Mail book review pages last Friday a section called Retro Fiction with a review of a Barbara Pym novel. Pym is not a favourite of mine but it's nice to see that the mainstream media are reclaiming women writers of the twentieth century.
