Inspired by the comments on my post the other day on this month’s Six Degrees of Separation tag, I’ve decided to set myself a little project for January, and you’re all welcome to join in. The starting book for the tag this month was Vanity Fair – and much as I’d love to read that for the first time, I don’t own a copy at the moment.
However, one of my links took me to Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose, which I first read when it came out in paperback back in 1984. It’s a book I’ve long been planning to re-read, and looking at the comments, it’s one many of you would like to revisit (or visit for the first time too).
So in January, I’m going to re-read The Name of the Rose – taking my time over the month to savour this modern classic. The book is written in seven sections (‘days’), the last being very short, so although I won’t impose a rigid framework on myself, I will vaguely aim to post every other ‘day’ of the book.
You’re very welcome to join me, as re-reader or new reader, and of course use my header.
