  2. I will read Richard III by Shakespeare. I love the theme, since I read a lot about him in connection with the discovery of his grave. Even went to Leicester to see the tomb. It was great, as was the museum. I have never read anything by Shakespeare, and I find it quite difficult. I think you just have to study Shakespeare to be able to read him comfortable, or what do you think? Anyway, I am happy to give it a try.

    • I find that seeing a live production or a good movie/TV version can help me get into unfamiliar Shakespeare. You’re halfway there with your interest in the real Richard III and the amazing recent archaeological find. Did you do a post on your visit to the tomb & museum – I’d been keen to see it if you did.

  4. The Call of the Wild by Jack London! And actually pretty happy that my spin book is on the shorter end. I’ve a feeling work is going to start assigning books again once back to school starts.

  5. A Tale of Two Cities – a reread. I have long maintained this is Dickens’ Greatest, in spite of the consensus David Copperfield. It has been a long time since I’ve read it…so I am anxious to see if it still holds up.

  6. Mine is The Postman Always Rings Twice – I’m kinda looking forward to it though I wasn’t much taken with his style of writing in Mildred Pierce. But on the upside it’s short and will be a brilliant excuse to watch the film again, so all good! 😀

  8. Having just finished a Tove Jansson novel (The Summer Book) I was wondering where in the world I’d be heading to next. Turns out it’s Russia: I’ve Anton Chekhov’s Early Stories as my selection! I’m quite pleased as it’s a while since I last read anything from that part of the world.
