Hello, fellow readers!
There are never enough reading events, right? At the Librarything Virago Readers Group, August is a month dedicated to reading through our beloved green spines: yes, it’s time for
I have some Viragos on my 20 Books of Summer list, so I’ll try to tackle these:
- Marriage, by Susan Ferrier (1818)
- Vera, by Elizabeth von Arnim (1921)
- Wild Strawberries, by Angela Thirkell (1934) – Thirkell is the group’s monthly read!
- Poor Caroline, by Winifred Holtby (1931)
- A View of the Harbour, by Elizabeth Taylor (1947)
- Treasure Hunt, by Molly Keane (1952)
- October: The Sense of an Ending, Frank Kermode
- December: Illuminations, Walter Benjamin
- February: Fables of Identity, Northrop Frye
- Thereafter: Mimesis, Erich Auerbach
and, finally, it’s time for another
This is a week long readathon hosted by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It begins 12:01am Monday, August 20th and runs through Sunday, August 26th in whatever time zone you are in. For all Bout of Books 23 information and updates, visit their blog.
My goal is simple: I will try to read as much of my August TBR books as possible! 🙂
That’s all, folks. What are you reading? Do you have any new projects?
Yours ever so truly,
