The last few weeks have been a bit crazy for me, both at work and at home, and somehow, I forgot all about May. I was prepared for June. How did that happen? While I feel decidedly odd about forgetting an entire month, I am glad that it is not June yet.
So while I was trying to decide what to read in the extra 31 days I suddenly have on my hand, I came across The Wharton Review, a month-long focus on Edith Wharton, hosted by Brona. Head on over to her blog to read all about it.
For me, it’s perfect timing. Several participants of the Madame Bovary read-along that just concluded made comparisons between Flaubert and Wharton. That made me curious, since I have only read Ethan Frome so far. Add to that the fact that I have The Age of Innocence on my Classics Club list, and I have all the motivation I need to start reading.
