By December 31, 2012

Follow me on:

After the holidays are over, you'll hopefully have a few moments to pause and reflect on the year that has passed. Which classics have you read this year? How many classics are on your list to read in 2013?

Take a look at these resources related to the after-holiday and alternative-holiday experiences.

I am reading two books at the moment. One of them I bought a few months ago, and am just finding the time to read it now: A Night At The Majestic: Proust and the Great Modernist Dinner Party of 1922. The evening included of course Marcel Proust, Joyce, Picasso, Diaghilev, and Stravinsky. By David Davenport Hines.

The second is A Portrait of Jane Austin, by David Cecil. This is one I will keep forever; it is beautifully illustrated. Lots of paintings, drawings and photographs, and a wonderful account of her life.

If anyone is interested in music history/biography, I have but have not finished Stravinsky, The Second Exile: France and America, 1934-1971. By Stephen Walsh.

I read 19 classics this past year. My favorites were: The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier, and Anna Karenina by Tolstoy. I hope to read at least 10 next year or more. I have created a list of 220 I’d like to work my way through before I reach 35 years old. (I’m 26 now.)Next year I hope to tackle: The Odyssey, The Aeneid, and Don Quixote plus others. Any suggestions for my must read list?

A Night At The Majestic was written by Richard Davenport-Hines. Sorry…
