What I Am TRYING To Read

Read Matthew Lewis' The Monk a good while ago.  Ponderous but in its day absolutely shocking!  Judging by what some bloggers have written they have never read the book!

 I am now, if my failing eyes let me, trying to read the 551 pages The Skeleton Crew, or, Wildfire Ned (published 1866~1867).

Mad does not cover it but if you are not used to Victorian prose as used in "Penny Dreadfuls" look out!

I do hope I survive to the end.....of the book!
