I'd never heard of any of those books and clicked the link for 39 Steps (the cover was intriguing). Is that a historical fiction novel or is that set in present day?

Hi Heather, I stumbled upon the 39 steps in the bookstore last week. I'm still researching on the book so I don't know much about the book yet other than the fact that its a classic adventure novel which was first published in 1915.

I read the first few pages and liked it but didn't want to do another impulse buy at that point. I'm actually getting myself a copy this weekend because of the fact that its a classic spy novel. I also like penguin's book cover version and it'll look great on my bookshelf. :P

The Help caught my eye also...I will definitely have to read that one. I haven't heard of your others though. Thanks for sharing them.

I think I read The 39 Steps years ago, but don't really remember it all that well. Loved the movie, though. Maybe it's time for a re-read. I've seen mixed reviews of The Secret Scripture.
