Classics Club booklist which I compiled back in 2012. It's a list of books I want to get through, yes, but it's not one that I'm highly motivated to finish. Enter challenges and bookclubs. Somehow knowing that others are reading along with me (and depending on me for some sort of concluding thoughts!) is often just enough motivation. It also helps that this is an extremely short book, especially since my family is in the middle of a move. (We've lived the same place for sixteen years this month, and we have a lot of stuff!) I will in all likelihood read this one aloud to my children, though I am reserving the right to enjoy it on my own should I find that it isn't going to work well for us as a read-aloud.
What do I know about this book? Nothing, except that I see it quoted fairly frequently. According to Wikipedia, it is the third most translated book in the world. It looks like it's time I read it!
I'm looking forward to reading along with you all!
We always love to know when others plan to read along with us. If you are hoping to do so, let us us know in the comment section. I own a copy of this book and will definitely be reading along with. (I too am glad it's a short read this month!)
