Here's a photo of all the books I'll try to read in June!

Hello everyone! I'm going to participate in a new book meme that is hosted by me, Rabbit Ears Book Blog called "Book Photo Sundays" where you get to post up various book photos you have taken.  The photos can come from your Instagram account or from any other account you have where you keep photos of your books at.  I will post up a new book photo every Sunday and you are free to link up your book photos to the link up on the page. To participate in this week's Book Photo Sundays, go to the link here:

Book meme - older favorite books

I found this meme on a Swedish book blog and I thought I'd do it too.

The meme is about appreciating classics, books that are at least 100 years old.

Irritatingly, my homepages are still down. I had expected them to be up and working again by now, but no such luck. Grr. At least I have Dreamwidth and Booklikes.

First of all I'll mention my favorite Jane Austens:

Northanger Abbey
Persuasion
Sense and Sensibility
Pride and Prejudice
Lady Susan
(I'd say Sanditon too, but I'm afraid I don't even remember what I thought about it). All were published between 1794 and 1818.

Most of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's books about Sherlock Holmes are at least 100 years old too. I'll pick A Study in Scarlet (1887) and The Sign of the Four (1890), even though I like all his books about Sherlock Holmes.

I'd mention some by Charles Dickens as well, but it's been ages since I last read any of them so I'll save them for later.

My favorite Jules Verne book, Voyage au centre de la Terre/Journey to the Center of the Earth, is from 1864. I'm not sure why Iike this one so much, but I do.

Edith Nesbit's children's books are other favorites of mine. I can mention The House of Arden, The Railway Children and The Enchanted Castle. They were published 1906 -1908.

Speaking of children's books, I have to mention Alice in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass (1871).

I was going to mention Winnie the Pooh and The Red House Mystery by A A Milne, but it turns out they were all published in the 1920's.

I also thought a few of Agatha Christie's mysteries were published a hundred years ago or more, but it turns out I was wrong. They too were published from the 1920's and on.

However it seems Trent's Last Case by B C Bentley was published in 1913 so that one counts. One interesting detail about that book is that a Swedish mystery writer, Stieg Trenter took is name from Trent. His wife and one of his daughters are also mystery writers (his daughter writes for children).
