It’s time to announce our first Reading Buddies book of 2012! For January, as chosen by poll, we’ll be reading A Room with a View by E.M. Forster. I’ve read several books by Forster and have enjoyed each one, so I’m looking forward to tackling this next one with all of you!

Reading Buddies badge and Room with a View by E.M. Forster (cover)

Written in 1908, A Room with a View is an “Edwardian social comedy [that] explores love and prim propriety among an eccentric cast of characters assembled in an Italian pensione and in a corner of Surrey, England” (from Goodreads). Head over to Goodreads to read more!

December’s book, as announced previously, is The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. (As Christina pointed out, classics seem to be a popular choice for Reading Buddies books — I love it!) My two posts for Hawthorne’s classic will go up on December 16th and 30th. I hope you’ll join in the discussion!

And finally, the poll for February is up in the sidebar. Be sure to vote for your preference!

  1. I have this one sitting on my shelf, so I’ll definitely join in. Thanks for organizing these. I’ve been meaning to participate forever, but this is the first one where the timing will work. Yay!

  2. I read A Room With a View in high school and I recall absolutely nothing about it. I recall hating it, but A Room With A View is the sort of book I would have hated in high school, so that means nothing. I’m going to have to try this one again.
