I just finished The Monk by Matthew Lewis which was published in 1796 and was absolutely thrilling in the true sense of the word. Full of diabolical doings by ordinary humans, it was an amazing novel that seemed as though it could have been written in this century with a few revisions. It was marvelous. I'm also reading The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte and I can't put that down either. I'm on travel right now but will make an attempt on Atlas Shrugged when I get home.
Hi Nandini - I see you've read some (all?) of the Sharon Kay Penman books. I haven't read Devil's Brood yet but I love her books. Have you seen her blog? It's pretty good. And WOW, you gave Atlas Shrugged 5 stars. I've had so many people say they didn't like it. It's on my shelf but I've yet to find the courage (or time) to pick it up.
The History Non-Fiction Group is voting for the Oct-Dec Quarterly Group read. We've had several interesting books nominated. Please take a look and vote if you'd like to join in.
Nominations for the Oct-Dec Quarterly read in the Non-Fiction History group are in progress. Please feel free to nominate a book you'd like to see us read together.
The History Non-Fiction Group is set to read The Linguist and the Emperor: Napoleon and Champollion's Quest to Decipher the Rosetta Stone by Daniel Meyerson for the Jul-Sep quarter. This book discusses the two men whose lives intersected over a love of all things Egypt and led to Campollion solving the mystery of the language on the Rosetta Stone. The book is fairly short - only 271 pages including the Author's Note at the end - and easy to read so it's a good book for the first ever quarterly read. Please join us if you're interested.
Hi Nandini - Welcome to the History Non-Fiction Group. I'm the Admin for the group and am interested in what our members like to read and what they want to get out of this group. If you haven't already done so, please introduce yourself in our "Welcome and Introduction" thread. We've just selected the book for our upcoming quarterly group read so check that out if you're interested in joining us for the Jul-Sep quarter. Again, glad to have you with us!
