As I mentioned earlier in this challenge, I have been trying to knock off some of the longer residents on my bookshelves. Earlier this year, I read The Story of the Eye by Gearge Bataille. I bought this when I was at university. Only twenty years ago. Pretty appalling really, especially as it is classic erotica. Forget 50 Shades of Grey, this book was genuinely shocking.
Books that are still on my shelf from this time are:
- Death comes for theArchbishop – Willa Catha
- Dead Souls – Nikolai Gogol
- The Well of Loneliness – Radclyffe Hall.
It makes me feel a little guilty. As if I was somehow hurting their feelings. I will have to read at least one of them this year.
