Report from limbo

When I finished my self-assigned task of reading all the bestsellers from 1900 to 1969 looking to see which ones hold the most value for today’s readers, I was absolutely, positively sure I didn’t want to lock myself into a routine like that again.

After about two weeks without a book review to post, I began to experience withdrawal symptoms.

I’m debating whether to review more of the influential novels that didn’t make the bestseller lists (such as Walter Greenwood’s Love on the Dole, which I just read) or push myself to finish all the 20th century bestsellers. I’m still not entirely sure which I’ll do, but whichever I choose, I’ll start the series in 2018.

For the rest of 2017, I’ll be posting some teasers about novels I want to read again.

I hope some of them encourage you to check out an old novel.
