The 50 in 52 Project Reading Challenge continues! (scroll down for more info)
I’ve just finished the 20th book, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald…only 30 more books to go! (For a cool quote from the book, check out the previous blog post!)
Next up is….Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf (1925)
For those keeping score: this is book #21, week #22
A little info on Virginia Woolf and her work:
Virginia Woolf was born in 1882 in London. She is considered to be one of the most important modernists and an early feminist. Along with James Joyce and William Faulkner, she pioneered the use of stream of consciousness as a way to delve deeper into the psychology of her characters. Woolf also used her characters’ internal dialogue as a narrative device. She was part of the Bloomsbury Group of writers along with E. M. Forester. Her major works include To the Lighthouse (1927), Orlando (1928), and A Room of One’s Own (1929). She suffered from mental illness and took her own life in 1941.
The 50 in 52 Project Reading Challenge is a fundraiser for RAINN.org (Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network). I challenged myself to read 50 books in 1 year (6/1/18 to 6/1/19). I’m asking folks to sponsor me by pledging a $ amount per book I read. Sponsors don’t have to pay anything until after the Challenge finishes (6/1/19).
