100 Books Challenge: Frankenstein

One of my writing friends, Jacob, is challenging everyone to read through the list of 100 books that we posted some weeks ago. He has started a new blog called Reading the Top 100 Novels Together, based on that list. It's an ambitious plan to spend the next 100 months making his way through this list, reading one book each month. He invites all of us to join him and to share in conversation along the way.

The first book is going to be Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. The plan is to start with book #100 and to work up to #1.

I remember reading Frankenstein back in the 8th grade. I was one of those nerdy kids who had a special list from which to choose her reading material. I liked the darker, horror novels and also read Dracula and Rebecca that year. I remember discussing the book later in high school and of course have seen some of the movies. It has been a long time since I read it, so this is going to be interesting!

Please join us in this adventure. You can start with a free download of the book for your Kindle or Kindle app. Or, purchase a physical copy to enjoy it the old-fashioned way!
