Here at Age 30+ ... A Lifetime of Books we'll be reading FRANKENSTEIN by Mary Shelley. Over at Fizzy Thoughts they'll be reading DRACULA by Bram Stoker. Jill and I will both post discussion questions for our own book as well as questions comparing the two (in case you've read both).
- 10/1 - we begin with a list of questions to consider as you read - here's the Frankenstein link, and here's the Dracula link
- 10/15 - we'll do an update post to see how everyone is coming along
- 10/31 - we'll post a recap of the read-a-long with links to each participants review
Why Read About Monsters?
Other than the fact that these books are classics so of course you should read them, I'd also say that they are surprising good (at least, DRACULA is good - I haven't read FRANKENSTEIN yet). Plus they count toward the 1% Well Read Challenge and lots of other challenges out there. And besides, it will be fun!
