Simon at Stuck in a Book and Karen of Kaggsy’s Bookish Ramblings have come up with a new blog-community-project, which looks really interesting. The idea is to get everyone reading from a particular year ‘“ reading whatever you’d like to, so long as it was published in 1924. For more details click on over to Simon’s blog
To take part post your reviews of a book or books published in 1924 between 19-31 October and during that time Simon will also have gathering-up posts available where you can link to your reviews, as well as any other 1924 book reviews you’ve ever written.
So, I’ve been looking at my shelves and have a small selection – some short stories by Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, which I haven’t read yet. These were first published in magazines in 1924 and later in various collections. I also have Parade’s End by Ford Madox Ford which was published in four parts, the first one, ‘Some Do Not …’ in 1924. I’ve been wanting to read this ever since I watched the BBC Two production in August 2012.
