Monday #527

Halfway through May now and there still hasn’t been much of an improvement in the weather. Came out of a solid week of mist to have one mild and sunny day before the rain returned. At least you don’t need good weather to read books and then write about them online!

Letters to Enid part 27


Enid Blyton’s Holiday Stories then and now, part 7

While I’ve been going through Enid Blyton’s Holiday Stories lately, I’ve been using several of the original Holiday Books as they contain many of the stories which were reprinted. There are 12 in total and I’ve only just bought myself the first one.

So, The Enid Blyton Holiday Book, the first and original Holiday Book, the one that started them all.

Published in 1946 by Sampson Low it has 42 stories, plays and poems mostly collected from Sunny Stories, plus crafts, puzzles and more, rounding it out to 58 entries in all. It’s a fairly hefty book, the largest of my 12 holiday books, with 288 pages – a hundred more than are in the Third Holiday Book.

    Long time lurker, first time poster! I have chosen to keep my identity anonymous, if that’s okay, I used to love reading Enid Blyton book’s when I was younger and am now hoping I can get back into them! I was wondering if you had any thoughts on Season 4 of TV adaptation of Malory Towers. I’m not sure how I feel about it, but as a nosy person, would love to know what you and others think!

    Have a wonderful week!

      I haven’t any thoughts on series 4 yet, I haven’t got around to watching it (or series 3!!) yet. When I do I’ll definitely be reviewing it.
