This month's meme is to ' Pick a classic someone else in the club has read from our big review list. Link to their review and offer a quote from their post describing their reaction to the book. What about their post makes you excited to read that classic in particular?'
I've really enjoyed quietly browsing through the review list during August. Because I prefer not to read reviews before I've read a book myself my focus was less on the book the reviewer was writing about and more on the expression of how they felt about it. I found the enthusiasm I was looking for on two blogs and I'm not choosing one over the other - it is the same book.
' Don't let this book pass you by....a "MUST READ." 'Even before I read those words I was captivated by the descriptions of nature that were quoted.
'....and then I started reading it and I didn't want it to end. This is one of my favorites of the year so far. Love love love.'
Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak
That's enough to inspire me to add it to my list and be excited about reading it!
