20th Century Classic - March

UPDATE: Our votes are always close and this month was no exception.  The winner of the March poll was The Custom of the Country by Edith Wharton. 

Please join us in March for our CBL's 20th century classic literary choice.  This year our goal was to opt for a modern-ish classic that is, perhaps, a lesser known title and will hopefully be a first time read that we can share together versus a revisit to a vaguely familiar assigned reading from our academic past.  However, it's just fine if it's a re-read for you.   I also felt that all 3 options would offer some great discussion topics, and lastly, none of the 3 options are 600 page snores. 

The poll is up, please click the more tab, then polls, and vote for your choice.  Mr. K's, Thriftbooks.com, or the library are great options for these great classic reads, but I believe all 3 are available on kindle also. 

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

    These all looked like good reads. Two were free on Kindle and the other was $2.99. Treat yourself!

      Thanks, Laurie! I downloaded them as well, then ended up finding a copy of our winner at a flea market for $1.00 also, so I splurged. AND, 'The Custom of the Country' is supposed to be Edith Wharton's greatest work, (according to the experts, of course). I'm halfway through so far, so good. I'm sooooooo hoping I can make it.

      I hope so, too. And wasn't Undine's name just about the right amount of "ugly" for her. Yikes!

    Fun Fact - "Edith Newbold Jones was born into such wealth and privilege that her family inspired the phrase "keeping up with the Joneses."
    See you tomorrow!

    I joined in the middle of the month so I'm not going to start the book for March, but I'm really excited for April!

    I have just joined the club, therefore have not had time to read the book. But I hope to come to the next meeting.
