Tracey (traceyrb) | 365 comments For September's reading I have chosen A Passage to India

Please post if you also would like to read this or another book of your choice for this decade.

What is your favourite Forster?

Rosemarie | 263 comments My favourite is Room with a View, one of his lightest books.

Tracey (traceyrb) | 365 comments I am reading Kristin Lavransdatter with another group and so will also be listing this as a 1920s choice. If anyone wants to join in on this one I can let you know the group.

The film wasn't bad I thought.

I've heard of this book on a YouTube video.

Rosemarie | 263 comments I liked the film of A Passage to India better than the book. It was visually appealing with many talented actors.
