We are delighted to announce that sign up is open for all interested in participating in the January 2010 Classics Circuit: Edith Wharton.
Below you will find some general information about Edith Wharton, her writing, summaries of her novels, and links to blogger’s reviews and other reader’s reviews. Yes, it is a lot of information! Believe it or not, even this is not comprehensive. Some stories, novellas, and poems by Wharton are collected in different publications, and those would work too! We hope this might help you decide what you’d like to read for the tour and in what way you may like to welcome Wharton to your blog. And maybe it, along with all the Wharton stops, will help you decide on your next Wharton read once the tour is over.
Can you believe it?!?! It is already the second week of November. Mr. Collins will be continuing his blog stops. Please join Mr. Collins while he visits the following blogs:
November 9, 2009 - Time Enough At Last Review: A Rogue’s Life
November 10, 2009 - The Zen Leaf Review: The Haunted Hotel
November 11, 2009 - Book Gazing Review: Woman in White
November 12, 2009 - Ooh…Books Review: The Moonstone
November 13, 2009 - Shelf Love Review: Armadale
Edith Wharton will visit the Classics Circuit in January!
Out of 54 votes, 40% voted for Edith Wharton, 27% for John Steinbeck, 16% for Mark Twain, and 14% for Willa Cather.
We will only be doing one tour in January at this point. I’m hoping that even if your selected author wasn’t chosen, you may be inspired to read some of his or her work during January anyway!
Sign up will be either next week or the next. I am also hoping to post a poll so you can share your feedback on the Circuit thus far. (Note: Do not sign up on this post!)
I hope you are enjoying this first week of the Collins tour! Keep reading those classics!
It is amazing that November is already upon us. The Wilkie Collins tour starts tomorrow (Monday). Please join Mr. Collins as he visits the following blogs this week. What a wonderful way to start the month of November!
