Allie at A Literary Odyssey is hosting "A Modern March" event:
|Fantastic button, eh?|
So I decided to jump on it right away, because a) ever since I learned to really enjoy Modern lit last year I've been a lot more interested to read more, b) learning to really enjoy Modern lit last year made me realize what a deficiency I have in that period, and c) I've been reading 19th-century stuff and will continue to be reading it for Celebrating Dickens in February so I'll probably be very ready to move to something different in March.
I've also been thinking that I need to revise my Classics Club list to include more Modern literature. It's chock-full of 19th-century books and even contemporary fiction (mainly the ones I know everyone reads in high school and I feel obligated to read at some point even though I know nothing about them) and practically skips over Modern lit. So over the next month, I'll be revising it to include some of the books I want to read for this event.
See you in March!
