This is the first book that I read for the 2012 Back to the Classics. (And only, so far. I better start working on that.)
One day I was sitting in class (back when I was still a student…has it really been only a year since I graduated?) and I saw a classmate reading To the Lighthouse. When I think of Virginia Woolf that’s the book that I think of. I haven’t read it, but the cover of the book that she had was pretty. (I know, I know, don’t judge a book by it’s cover!) I decided to take a look and as I was browsing books by Virginia Woolf I stumbled on the most adorable cover.
This is a great recommendation! I'm fascinated by Virginia Woolf, but find her prose tedious at times. I struggled with the class I took in college where we read three of her novels. This was not one of them– in fact I'm not sure I've even heard of this one! Sounds right up my alley.
