Reading 1920


Monday's the start of the 1920 Club, presented by Simon at Stuck in a Book and Karen at Kaggsy's Bookish Ramblings. They pick out a year and everyone reads and reviews books published during that year. Sounds like fun!

I've acquired three books from 1920, which was complicated somewhat by the current library closure. But my trusty Kindle Paperwhite came through for me and I'm ready to read these books:

  • "On The Art of Reading" by Arthur Quiller-Couch
  • "The Mysterious Affair at Styles" by Agatha Christie
  • "This Side of Paradise" by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Books about books are always fun, and in the comments on the club announcement page, Liz mentioned "On the Art of Reading". It a compilation of lectures given at Cambridge University in  England, lectures described as wildly popular in contemporary accounts! So that's my first one.


  1. The Quiller-Couch does sound like fun. Looking forward to your thoughts on this one!

    1. Yes, I'm eager to get into that one. It should be fascinating to see what he recommends that people do to learn how to read Literature in the 20s.
