The 50 in 52 Project Reading Challenge continues! (scroll down for more info)
I’ve just finished the 9th book, Great Expectations by Charles Dickens…only 41 more books to go!
Next up is….Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (1865)
For those keeping score: this is book #10, week #14
A little info on Lewis Carroll and his work:
Lewis Carroll was born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson in 1832. He was a mathematician and an Anglican Deacon. He studied then taught at Christ Church College at Oxford University from 1850 until his death. He took up photography and focused for a time on portraits; his subjects included the poets Alfred, Lord Tennyson and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Carroll wrote a sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in 1871, Through the Looking Glass, a darker work, written while he was suffering from depression. The character of Alice was inspired by Alice Liddell, the daughter of Henry Liddell, the Dean of Christ Church College. Carroll died from pneumonia in 1898.
The 50 in 52 Project is a fundraiser for RAINN (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). To sponsor me, click HERE. For more info and a list of the 50 books, go to the posting pinned to the top of the official 50 in 52 Facebook page.
