October Reading

Anarchy in the U.K., 1859-1860
(La dama de blanco)

Argentina, 1997
(Money to Burn)

Spain, 1626
(The Swindler)

Norway, 1920-1922

Note: It's not too late to join the Kristin Lavransdatter Readalong that Emily from Evening All Afternoon and I will be hosting from now through December.  Any and all who want to read a big fat 20th-century Scandinavian classic in the company of other readers are welcome to read along with us.  For details, see Emily's post here or mine here.  Emily and I will be linking to all participants' posts on our two blogs sometime near the end of each month during the readalong, but Bethany from Dreadlock Girl Reads has been kind enough to set up a third space, a book group dedicated to the shared read at the Book Blogs Ning over here, that may be a great way to discuss the trilogy prior to our collection of all your links.  Thanks a bunch to all of you who have already expressed enthusiasm for the readalong in the comments and on your own blogs.  Should be fun!

  1. I'm excited to hear what you think of "Woman in White". I've been meaning to read more Collins, but haven't gotten around to it - that book would be my first choice.

    Happy October reading!

  2. El libro de Collins , que estoy leyendo es las hojas caidas.
    El de Piglia lo he tenido en mis manos , pero no lo he leido.
    Saer un capo.
    Bolaño tiene razon cuando dice que la narrativa argentina es la mejor del siglo xx

  3. *Sarah: It was a fairly easy choice because I've heard so many good things about the book (Moonstone is the other one by him that seems to get a lot of blog love). What else by Collins have you read? Happy reading to you as well!

    *Leox: Parece que estoy de acuerdo con Bolaño y contigo. En todo caso, Piglia y Saer me encantan. Que tú lo disfrutes el libro de Collins. ¡Saludos!

  4. I've read "Moonstone", which I liked fairly well, although I wasn't blown away. :)
