Erin (erinm31) | 609 comments Aww, I know what you mean! It felt good this past year to finally read several books that I’d been meaning to read F O R E V E R!
Good luck with your challenge! 😁

I was thinking the same. Christopher your list is full of books complete new to me. I learn so much from this group!

Howard Pavane (howard_pavane) | 19 comments Thanks for more books to check out. That’s quite an extensive list of books I am not familiar with. So thanks for more possibilities.

Having joined this group recently, I’m interested in putting together a list of classics. My goal is to read the classics (whatever “classics” means), in more or less chronological order. I have 3 books to read next:

1. Gilgamesh; translator Stephen Mitchell
2. The Six Wives of Henry VIII; by Alison Weir
3. The Tudors, The Complete Story… ; by G. J. Meyer

Has anyone read any of the above? Any comments are welcome. No Spoilers please.

I’m really excited about this group.

I have read The Six Wives of Henry VIII, and found it fascinating. Alison Weir is a dedicated historian, she doesn't stray from the facts into conjecture and her writing style is wonderfully fluid.

Christopher (Donut) | 179 comments Although I am having a good reading year so far, I haven't read any of these books yet.

I guess the point of picking twelve is to AIM for one book per month, right?

That little guy looks somewhat intense about his project, but he can only crack one at a time.

Christopher (Donut) | 179 comments I think 2020 will be a rollover of 2018 and 2019 TBRs.

No sooner did I make this list than I forgot all about it.
