I was just about to sit down and start writing my review of Alan Garner’s, The Wierdstone of Brisingamen, when I realised that finishing this 1960 classic fantasy filled the last slot in the ‘Older than You’ category, and also completed my TwentyTen challenge. You would have thought being my own challenge I would have already known that this would be the case, when I picked the book up.
But for some reason. Nope, the occasion slipped by me completely! 😉
