I am inordinately excited to have been selected as a reader for 67 Books, a project that corresponds with National Library Week. What does being a reader mean? It means I get to stand on the roof of the library and read out-loud from whatever book I choose (within the libraries catalogue) for an hour. I'm actually surprised at how much I'm looking forward to this, though I suppose that's a natural response from someone who spent the greater part of her childhood halfway up a tree reading a book.
But now that I have been selected, a difficult task lays before me. I must choose, amongst thousands of books, the one I want to read.
The task is both daunting and terrifying, and I must admit, I find myself quailing before the challenge.
And so, dear readers, it is up to you. What book shall I read? On the right is a poll where you can vote for the book you want me to read. I have fairly represented both the Greeks and Romans and literature and philosophy. I have also included a few my favourite more modern authors.
Just in case I have overlooked some tremendously good book (and I might be opening a can of worms with this one), you can write in a vote in the comments of this post (and this post only). However, I reserve the right to ignore write-in votes if I so choose. (You can vote and post a write-in if you wish)
