Tentative Starting Date
I plan on starting next Thursday, because midterms will be over by then. I may have a friend also doing it with me and contributing to the blog. She can add a female perspective to the, admittedly very dead, old, white man-ish, list. I can’t confirm for sure, however she seemed pretty set on doing it with me.
The first book is THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS by Booth Tarkington, and as true with many of the books on the list, I have no idea what to expect. I’ve read 5 of the books on the Modern Library’s list, and around 13 on the Radcliffe list, so I will be going into most of these blind.
I am extremely excited to start, and I will get started as soon as possible. Hopefully the first novel isn’t too hard of a read, so I can get my first review in.
On a random note, I plan noting whether or not each book has a movie each review because I’m interested in seeing how many of the so-called greatest novels ever have warranted a film version.
