Falling Leaves

Well, it’s official, at least in my mind. Our lawn is covered with leaves, the weather has finally given us relief from the boiling heat (albeit a brief respite) and we’ve watched our first football game of the season (we won!). All of this, plus the fact that school has started up again means… it’s fall! And for some reason, fall almost always puts me in a very project-y mood (I know, I really need more to do, right?).

Another thing I personally associate with fall is “Oldies.” I don’t know why, but whenever the weather turns cold, I crave those Beatles and Beach Boys hits and the radio in my car gets set on the local oldies station whenever I’m driving somewhere. This combined with my lack of knowledge in the “classic literature” department led me to create:

The “Oldies” project

For this project, I will attempt to read 3 classics before Thanksgiving (possibly the end of November if I’m in the middle of one). That’s only one a month, so I have time to read other stuff, plus do all my homework type reading.
The plan is to read:

1) The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
2) Wuthering Heights by Charlotte Bronte
plus one other, TBD at a later time.
Anyone who would like to join me is welcome – we can keep each other accountable!

Look out for upcoming reviews:
Going Bovine by Libba Bray
Peeps by Scott Westerfeld

    What a great idea! I may join you on this! By the way, The Three Musketeers is one of my FAVORITES. I lovelovelove Dumas. His books are so… swashbuckling.
