Elizabeth Taylor Centenary

July 3, 2012 marked the centenary of Elizabeth Taylor‘s birth.  To celebrate, reading events took place in the blog community, on LibraryThing, and on Facebook.  We read one novel per month, in order of publication.  Bloggers hosted monthly readalongs.

Retrospectives on this year of reading can be found here on this blog, and on Heaven-Ali’s blog, here.

Below you’ll find a roundup of links to reviews and related posts.
