Friday @ the Forums: March 8th
We are one week into our Sherlock Holmes reader's choice selection this month. Here's what else is going on around the forums this week.
Book Club Contest for Gadfly: Want to join me for a side read in June/July? - Our Shelftator Angie is gathering CWAtC'ers for a side read in July. Check it out for more info.
Strange Bedfellows - What are the strangest books grouped together on your bookshelves? Or what are the strangest books you read together or right after each other.
The Bad Girls of Literature - To be clear we're not looking for the "badass" girls (e.g. Lisbeth Salandar), but more like the Hatsumomo from Memoirs of a Geisha or Emma Bovary from Madame Bovary.
Classic Books Mentioned in Other Classic Books - Recently we read The Age of Innocence and both Middlemarch: A Study of Provincial Life and the author Alphonse Daudet. Do you know of any?
I Managed to (Re-)Read it and I Liked it! - Anil on our forums started this one and it needs some love. Anyone else have a book you hated then tried again and loved?
Next week we look at the Sherlock Holmes discussions that are going on!
