Happy New Year!
I love starting out fresh. Last January I decided not to make any resolutions but vaguely proclaimed my intent to be more wholesome in my lifestyle. This was a nice idea but the only concrete thing I had to show for it at the end of 2010 was the production/consumption of lots of loaves of homemade bread. Fragrant and delicious, yes, but this year I admit I want to achieve something more dramatic and less caloric. So I decided that each month I'm going to tackle a classic book that's always intimidated me. Want to join? How exciting would it be to look back this December and have read twelve amazing, hard books?! I think that would be something to write home about.
my January book is...
(see below. look, I even summarized for you the wikipedia article about it, if you are like me and knew NOTHING about this book. You might want to click on it to make it bigger if you want to read it)
(is there a good way to discuss a book in a blog? I would love to have some kind of discussion at the end of the month, if any one else out there wants to be moral support for me and participate. Ideas? I've never seen a book group on a blog before. I must investigate but if you know how to do it, please share)
