Each page of the calendar contains something about a work of literature, often in the form of a question with the answer printed upside-down in tiny print at the bottom of the page.
I've had daily tear-off calendars before, often with cartoons on each page, but I've never had one that kept my attention as this one has. As it nears the end of 2010 and the pad has grown very thin indeed, it seems I've begun to notice books that I want to read much more often on its pages. In the last week these books have come to my attention:
- Ghostwalk, by Rebecca Stott
- Travels With My Aunt, by Graham Greene
- The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint, by Barry Udall
- Fall on Your Knees, by Ann-Marie MacDonald
