I’ll be spending my weekend reading 1924 books in preparation for the 1924 Club kicking off on Monday – I unwisely decided to start quite a few books at once, but I’m hoping to finish at least one of them by Monday. Of course, the club readalong will be going on over a fortnight, so plenty of time!
1.) The blog post – speaking of readalongs, Ali has come up with a really brilliant Woolf readalong plan for 2016. It’s a very thoughtful look at Woolf’s life and career, with plenty of opportunities for the Woolf devotee or the Woolf newbie. I’m looking forward to lots of Woolf re-reading, and maybe even finally getting around to reading her letters and diaries.
2.) The link – Koko the gorilla had a birthday and picked some kittens to be her pets. Then she signed ‘put it on my head’. Koko is the gorilla we all deserve.
3.) The book – I’ve had my eye on this for a while, in my Amazon wishlist, but just spotted it in a shop the other day. I resisted (partly because my birthday isn’t too far away!) but this Princeton University Press reprinted edition of Alice with illustrations by Salvador Dali looks like a must for my small but beautiful Alice collection (featuring thus far Tenniel and Tove Jansson).
