Hi clubbers!! We’re excited to be posting our latest meme question for the club!

Feel free to answer now or next month at your place, & leave a link to your response in the comments below so others can see what you have to say. Or really, you could just answer in the comments if you want. We really are quite flexible here. 🙂 Here’s the question this month:

“Reading” – Auguste Renoir (1890-1895)

  1. 19th century British literature, broadly from the late 18th to the turn of the century, but especially the period from about the 1840s to 1880s. I can’t really explain this, except to say that fiction in Britain had mushroomed, and the idea of the novel had developed and hit a stride. Even the cheesy, sensational fiction of this period seems really alive to me, and full of interesting language, in a way that I don’t find in a lot of later fiction.


  2. My favorite is 19th cent English Lit (esp the Gothic era). Totally my jam. Many of my favorite classics fall in this category and I’m rarely disappointed when I pick up a book from this time period.
