Using a very loose definition of 'classics' here - namely, any book written before 1960. If you like the 'oldies but goodies', this is the place to let us know!
Anyone else ever decide to read ALL (with a few skips) the DailyLit.com authors in ABC order...?
Many Classics are available and come in short, medium, or long posts on selected days.
In early 2017, I'll be winding up NOSTROMO.
Hi - I might be a little late to the game here, as many of you have already made reading-plans for this year. But I'm thinking of reading the novels of the Brontë-sisters this year. Seven in all. I was wondering if there had been a Brontenathon recently like we did the Austenathon a few years ago.
Would anyone be interested in a group read? Also maybe if you're interested in reading just one or two of their novels we could do that. We could also discuss the movie adaptations.
I wouldn't mind setting up a thread.
Maybe we could skip The Professor to make it six and read one every two months.
I'm talking about:
The Tenant at Wildfell Hall
There's already an interest in reading The Tenant at Wildfell Hall and maybe we could just read that one in february/march or something...
I actually just joined a readers group in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, called "The Classics" and I have not only joined them to read, but decided also to buy the books in the oldest or most special version possible.
For example, the book for Febr/March The Autobiography Of Alice B. Toklas by Gertrude Stein I bought the first edition for a reasonable price (17,50 euro).
For April's book To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf I have ordered the POD version hardback from The Dead Authors Society......
