Halfway July I saw this:
A Dutch bookblogger I was following on twitter decided to make August a month of of just reading classic literature, and invited fellow-bloggers to join her: to read at least one book of classic literature this month. I have sudden bouts of wanting to read ALL the classics (hence my Rory-list challenge). I decided to join in, and started some more Austen, since I quite enjoyed Northanger Abbey last month. More information on the Augustus Klassieke Literatuur Maand can be found here (in Dutch, sorry!).
And then this happened:
Besides Pride and Prejudice, I also started in Crime and Punishment (by Fyodor Dostoyevsky). And while were on that topic, can someone explain to me why you would put a lengthy analytical essay on the topic of the book as a chapter BEFORE the actual book? I don’t mind spoilers usually and I like analysis of books I’ve read, but this seemed a bit much.
Oh, and this will be also going on this August:
It’ll be a busy month for books and reading this August. And besides reading the thing, I’ll also have to go to work (new job within the contracter company I work for, hurray!), do social things, take care of my chinchilla’s, and there was this thing with housekeeping that I keep forgetting about. Do remind me to do my dishes sometimes this month, kay?
