After a Sherlock Holmes novel in March 2022, and Mrs Dalloway scheduled for April, what should Literature & Latte’s Book Club read in May? Please cast your vote in our poll:
The result will be announced early in April, to allow plenty of time to acquire and read the selected title before discussing it in May.
Please feel free to make other suggestions for books for us to read together — either reply to this message, or send me a PM. We’ll keep a list, and over the months ahead we’ll consider adding such suggestions to future book-choice polls.
When making a book suggestion, please remember that we will be reading books that are in the public domain in the UK and EU, where copyright laws protect work until 70 years after the author’s death.
All the best,
Just a reminder that there are only a few days left in which to cast your vote for the novel that our Book Club will discuss in May, here on our user forum. Currently, Joseph Conrad’s The Secret Agent is in the lead, followed by Ann Radcliffe’s The Mysteries of Udolpho, then Jack London’s Martin Eden, and (bringing up the rear) Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the d’Urbervilles. Which of those do you fancy? Please vote in the poll at the top of this discussion thread.
Please also reply to this message with any suggestions for future books that you would like the Book Club to include, for consideration in future polls.
We’ll open discussion for Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway on Friday 1st April. Hope to see you there!
This poll is now closed — thank you for your input. The Book Club selection for discussion in May is The Secret Agent, by Joseph Conrad (1907).
We have opened a new poll to select our June read — as well as voting there, please feel free to make further suggestions in that discussion.
All the best,
