Book to the Future

I started Book to the Future in order to catch up on the many, MANY literary classics I'm embarrassed to admit I've never read. However, this doesn't mean I'm only reading "the classics" - really, I'll give anything a go.

Reading Interests

Book to the Future is more than just a blog: it's a journey through time. For the next two-and-a-bit years, I'll be reading and reviewing one book every week, risking life and limb to read great works of literature in the year they were first published. My journey began in the year 1900 - every week since, I move forward one year in the future, reviewing a book that first hit the shelves in that year. Confusing? Possibly. But if you like reading, time travel and nice, hot cups of tea, you'll love Book to the Future.
