I can not tell you how excited i am for all those who joined the la porte rouge book club, forty three to be exact!( more everyday)
choosing the first book was not easy, i asked advice, pondered and finally decided on
Tess of the D'Urbervillesby Thomas Hardy.

so here we go!

i have placed the logo at the bottom of the blog along with url for you to copy and past on your blog!

i can not wait to go on this journey and meet Tess of the D'Ubervilles.

  1. Is it too late to join!!?? I would love to!

  2. I'm very much looking forward to reading Tess. thanks for bringing so many of us together for this Nadia. You are a dear heart.

  3. i was wondering if there was a way to switch which blog you have on the blog roll for me.
    you have c after b's daily dose, but i was wondering if you could just link to my main blog:


  4. Gonna pick up the book from the library! I can't wait to start.

    Wondering if you don't mind listing the blog I use the most instead of lark?

    Thanks Nadia! H

  5. I love this idea. However, I'm not sure if I can join this month. First I've got to check if my library will have the English version available and second, it's quite a long book, Hardy is hard to read when you're not a native speaker and I have a huge pile of books to be read. I'll try my best though and join in next month the latest :)

  6. great! we are glad to have you you are linked on sidebar under member!

  7. ilwen, i hope you do find it or perhaps one can be mailed to but no worries, since next montha new book will be announced. i have been told by many readers there is free legal version on the internet!

  8. off to a good start with chapter one. it seems interesting.

    *waving to everyone*; )

  9. Hi, I would love to join in next month as I don't like to be behind! :-) Following this blog
