Joining in with this again, for just the second time, as I’m working my way through a pile of ad hoc classics as well as the 1001 books list.

Last spin gave me the momentum to read and enjoy Sebald’s modern classic Austerlitz, so I’m looking forward to finding out what comes up this time. I’ve removed that book from the list, as well as Elizabeth Gaskell’s Cranford, which I read recently on audio book, and Tove Ditlvesen’s strange and disturbing The Faces, which I read in January. I’ve had to rejig the list a bit more too, as lots of my books are in storage pending building work!
