Time to get stuck in. Start with the short story collection, The Inimitable Jeeves or a more general collection such as Jeeves and the Yule-Tide Spirit and Other Stories (I mention this one because my daughter gifted it to me, and it offers a nice sweep). No excuses now :) Rob

I hate to admit it but I have never read Wodehouse. Yikes! He's been on my get-to list forever but I just haven't. This might be the perfect time, as you say.

Absolutely. The Penguin editions would be a nice thing to have on the shelf though.

A vast improvement over the old Penguin editions that are now over 20 years old and falling apart. Many with teeny tiny fonts too.

Delighted to have you drop by, dear Stu. En masse, I think there is no finer looking vista. And indeed, do it old chap! :) Rob

They're exquisite. I tackled 'Carry On, Jeeves' via the Jeeves and Wooster Omnibus published by Random House, and it's something of an unwieldy fellow. The Everyman's editions though are the perfect size, heft, quality etc. to make what is an enjoyable experience, even more so. And given that you need a lift, no sooner time to dig in. I look forward to comparing notes. Rob

Those Everyman editions are beautiful, aren't they? It's a long time since I read Wodehouse but I could do with a lift at the moment - and if I was going to re-read them, I would want those versions!
