|Currently at my bedside|
In the Classics Club 'Twelve Months of Classic Literature', March is feminist literature. I've got a couple of books picked out for this: Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, The Awakening by Kate Chopin and A Vindication on the Rights of Women by Mary Wollstonecraft. I'm really looking forward to getting my teeth into these, particularly Herland as I loved The Yellow Wallpaper. I also have a whole host of Virago and Persephone books on my shelves that would suit if I feel the need for more feminist lit (it's likely, I do love the laydeez).
March is actually going to be a month of finishing books that have been hanging about my bedside for far too long. Fighting on the Home Front has been there since before Christmas (started, got half way and then was distracted by various shiny books), and Careless People has been there since January (again, about a quarter through but the distractions are too great). I've been reading a short story from May Sinclair's Uncanny Stories every so often but I'd like to polish those of this month too for the TBR Pile Challenge. My final book to finish is No Man's Land, a chunky (and brilliant) anthology of WW1 writings.
One book I've been dying to read (I think since Riv's review) is Dracula. I have not read it before but it is one of those 'must read' cult classics I've always meant to get around to. I treated myself to this Penguin English Library edition a couple of weeks ago and I think I'll dive into it this month.
I think that's probably enough to be getting on with but no doubt distractions will happen and I'll end up winging it (the joy of reading, surely?!).
Do you have any reading plans for March? Will you be reading feminist literature with the Classics Club?
