    1. Delighted to hear this Joseph as this reread is one of my CC lists too. I, too, was concerned it may not live up to my very fond memory of it.

  1. 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.

    1. 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.

  2. For Operation Actually Read Bible I’ll be reading The Sovereignty of God by A.W. Pink. For Becky’s Book Reviews I’ll be reading The Conqueror by Georgette Heyer.

    1. Oh, wow! I’ve found Heyer’s non-Regency romance novels are really tough to get through. Looking forward to your opinion on The Conqueror!:)

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    1. I fell in love with this book when we read it in high school. In fact, I stayed up late reading ahead and came into school and got into an impassioned argument with my teacher about the ending. He kept telling me to quiet down because I was a week ahead of the class.

    2. I read this & DC in my youth and remember them both very fondly. I hope to also reread both some day soon. Lucky you for getting this gentle nudge to get you to do so now 😊

    3. I read it in high school, too, but I’m afraid back then I didn’t feel the love…not like I do now for Dickens. I should reread it!

  5. 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! 😀

    1. I’m hoping to reread this one day. I have some Mitford’s with gorgeous covers that tempt me every time I see them on the bookshelf.

        1. I noticed! This is a good one…I know I would like to read it some day. For now, I just might read Persuasion….it’s the shortest of the lot, and a favourite.:D… Happy Reading!

  6. 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.

  7. I’ll be reading Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. Looking forward to it! I started it once, a long time ago, and couldn’t get into it but that was before I became interested in WWI and its impact.

    1. Midnight Confessions ( a wink to Steven Colbert): You won’t tell anybody right?… “Of course not!”
      I tell people I enjoy Woolf’s books…if fact I just enjoy saying I enjoy them! I’ve never read Virginia Woolf.
      I’ll put her on my Master Classic Club List! 🙂

      1. I’ve decided to read her in chronological order, but I’ve only read the first one to date – The Voyage Out. I’m hoping it will help me get into stream of consciousness style as she develops it.

    2. I’m reading Woolf in chronological order. I’ve only read the first so far, so a little while before I get to this one. But I have watched The Hours!

    3. Hope you enjoy it, I read it a few years ago and thought maybe I should try one of her novels instead (since I tend to have a hard time with stream of consciousness). I did see on my audiobook list an audio version of Mrs Dalloway and decided I would give it another try since one of my favorite narrators (Juliet Stevenson) reads it. That’s motivation.
