So, it’s 1st June and A Victorian Celebration starts today! I haven’t bought any of the books I was planning on reading but I’ll definitely try to start something today. I am very very intrigued by Treasure Island (Robert Louis Stevenson) which makes it the most probable first reading 🙂
I would also discuss some e-reading. Obviously, the cheapest way to read anything from the 19th century nowadays is to download it for free. Now, I have an iPad and I try to use it as much as I can but I always end up working on media – pics and movies – instead of using it for e-reading. For someone like me who adores books – the physical aspect is also very important – e-reading is not an option. But, I think this is the perfect even to be reconciled with my iPad and e-books.
Meanwhile I’m reading The Optimist’s Daughter by Eudora Welty, my first contact with Southern literature and I’m loving it. However, I feel like I’m missing something and should complement the reading with some article/theory. The eyes theme reminds me a lot of The Great Gatsby and the modernist Americans!
Lately, I’ve been giving the Kindle second thoughts. Do you have it? Do you like it? Do you read more?
