Part 43! Wow we've come a long way ever since the days of the single digit parts. We've covered a ton of books, talked about lots of experiences, and even talked about everything from reflecting on reading to celebrity book clubs. I am not going to lie to you, I'm really running out of things to talk to you about so—I'm going to talk to you about how I discovered one of my favourite modern authors of all time: Truman Capote.
We’re on part 42 and if you’ve stuck around this far, I’m honestly thankful for that. I’m also thankful for all the nice messages and comments I’ve been getting from these lists. I work my ass off making them and I’m not gonna lie, it’s getting harder and harder to think of things to talk about involving books now we’ve got to 42 sections. But, I still have a few things up my sleeve I’d like to discuss. In this section, I’d like to discuss why I love reading Russian Literature and what is so special about it for me.
I want to say thank you to whoever is still around after so many books and so much conversation about everything to do with books. We have approached the forties, and the next milestone (60) is quickly approaching! I want to talk about my favourite famous people of our modern day who encourage reading and why I love them. For those of you who know me, that means yes, I’m going to talk about Emma Roberts again, so prepare yourself.
We’ve now hit 1,200 in our list and I’m very proud of the fact that we’ve come so far on this journey. You may notice that still, there are some books you have known and loved that are missing and don’t hesitate to contact me to tell me what they are! We’ve talked about many things but in this article I want to talk about how awfully some books are turned into films, giving some examples of how not to adapt a book. Let’s get straight into it…
You really thought I was going to shut up, didn’t you? No, I’m not. Not yet anyway. I still have a while to go, and some more books I want to share with you. We may have spoken about a lot of topics with our last meeting concentrating on why it is important to read books from other cultures apart from the usual normalised racism that happens across the world. But, today I want to discuss the greatest book ever written, and what most websites, people, and book lovers think it is. This doesn’t depend on sales, but actually depends on the writing style of the text itself. Most of these sophisticated book websites state the same book as being the greatest book ever written, and that is Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina.
Part 38 and we’re still going. I feel like we’re going to be doing this forever at this point, but hopefully I can round it off soon and you don’t have to listen to me rambling on about stuff to do with books for very long. We’ve looked at many different topics in our journey, and yet, we still have a ton of subjects to cover—today we’re going to cover the importance of reading different cultures, and not just your own.
