Night and Day | Virginia Woolf
post image

I bought myself a couple of presents at the bookstore. I guess I‘m just feeling the Woolf & Dickens vibes, these days.

JennyM That is a very beautiful Woolf ❤️ 5mo

Moray_Reads What a beautiful edition! Have you read it before? 5mo
saresmoore @Moray_Reads I haven‘t, but I‘m really looking forward to it! I‘m assuming you‘ve read it? 5mo
Moray_Reads @saresmoore I think it was the first Woolf I read. Less modernist than her later stuff but still exquisitely written 5mo
OnlyYoo I loved Bleak House. Possible my favorite Dickens so far! 5mo
batsy That Woolf 😍 Bleak House is still tbr for me, I had grand plans to read it for #litsyclassics last year but, well, 😆 5mo
emilyhaldi One gorgeous and one chunkster - a good combo! 🙌🏻 Happy to see you back on Litsy, you‘ve been missed!! 5mo
Centique @OnlyYoo Bleak House is my favourite Dickens so far too 😊 Enjoy Sara! 5mo
saresmoore @emilyhaldi ♥️♥️♥️ 5mo
saresmoore @OnlyYoo @Centique @AnneCecilie That‘s very encouraging to hear! 5mo
saresmoore @batsy I‘m honestly impressed that you can remember what was on your list for #litsyclassics! You know I‘d be up for a buddy read, but you probably also have deduced that I‘m a notoriously flaky buddy reader... 😬🤷‍♀️ 5mo
batsy @saresmoore I'm game if you are! Perhaps later in the year? 😁 #flakybuddyreadersunite 4mo

Vivlio_Gnosi Does @Litsy allow users to follow a hashtag or are we restricted to just searches? 7mo
Litsy @Vivlio_Gnosi At the moment, just searching. But, yes, that's something we're planning. Thanks! 7mo

“Our weary eyes looking still, looking always, looking anxiously for something out of life, that while it is expected is already gone - has passed unseen, in a sigh, in a flash - together with the youth, with the strength, with the romance of illusions.” (from Youth: A Narrative) #josephconrad #litsyclassics #holidayreads

Thank you @BookwormM - it arrived safely this morning 😊. Really not sure how I‘ll get on with this one, but looking forward to giving it a try - and it‘s 112 pages short, which always helps 👍

batsy This is on my list! Planned to read for #litsyclassics last year but never happened. Love this edition 💙 10mo
BookwormM Glad it arrived safely let us know how you get on 👍😃 10mo

I am actually quite satisfied with how I did overall with my year-long reading challenges! I came close with #LitsyAtoZ, but put aside the last few to finish up #pop18.

#LitsyClassics went to the wayside, but I think I did read at least 6. Apparently, alphabet challenges are not my thing. 🤷🏻‍♀️🥳

4thhouseontheleft Plus #MountTBR which I momentarily forgot all about! My goal was 24, and I read 30. 🥳🥳🥳 11mo

Chess Story | Stefan Zweig

#LitsyClassics bk 26 Z
Ta dah i finished and on a highlight of my reading year. Having been in the school chess team many moons ago i loved the story which encompasses more than just a game as it pits two very different men with different stories against each other.
Thanks to @Sarah83 for encouraging this challenge - I'll post a pic of all 26 tomorrow with hopefully my new challenge.
