So, I’ve been meaning to read Wilkie Collins forever. Even started The Moonstone once. And November does seem like a perfect time. I’m hoping that reading along will encourage me to keep going. I wanted to buy this beautiful copy, but it’s hard to justify when the ebook is free.
This readalong is nice and casual. One check-in, mid-month. You can sign up here, if you like.
I’ve read Agatha Christie’s Cat Among the Pigeons while working on The Luminaries, which I’m liking a lot so far.
I also decided I’ll make a page for 19th century books. I’m not going to set any kind of time limit on it. Just fill them in as I go and maybe when I’ve got a substantial number I’ll make a real effort at it. It may be difficult to find things for the early years, I don’t know. But I think it will be interesting if I keep at it.
