A good-bye and till-soon from Ann, Book Post‘s editor
I would not have read Moby Dick, The Betrothed, To The Lighthouse, and Middlemarch...without Book Post. I’m very grateful to you. Although I found Middlemarch the hardest to get through, especially since the issue of women’s inferiority was so front and center in the book, and so little explored in the comments. Reading those four was quite an accomplishment. I’m looking forward to the next, maybe a contemporary novel by a woman in which those issues are treated with more respect and knowledge.
I voted for the Victorians but would be delighted to read most anything you put on the table in front of me.
Thank you for your post, Ann. I was also missing Mona's post today! As well as missing reading Middlemarch with everyone.
I am very much looking forward to reading Commitment. Would be great to read/discuss with others especially with Middlemarch in mind.
Whatever comes next, count me in for being a part of it!
Others would like to keep on with the Victorians - I do not feel especially strongly about that myself. I don't say no though!
Thank you again for making this happen, Mona and Ann. Middlemarch will always be close to my heart after this reading : )
A gigantic bit of nonfiction like Power Broker by Robert Caruso.
