1924 Club

1924 Club

Today sees the launch of the 1924 Club and I’ve decided the easiest thing to do is to have a separate page for interested readers to leave their comments! So if you’ve stumbled across a wonderful book we’ve not heard of, re-read an old favourite, discovered a brand new one, or simply have a burning desire to communicate about books from 1924, here’s the place to leave your comments and links!

Simon’s introductory post is here, and we’ll be reviewing and writing about 1924 books for the next fortnight, rounding things up at the end. Happy reading! 🙂

        I’m also reading ‘Hotel Savoy’ but I won’t finish that today. I hope to finish a Krazy Kat post – I thought it would be a bit different.

        Great – and even if Savoy is a day or two late, I’m sure we can squeeze the link into the page! 🙂
