Introductory Post


My name's Claire and I've just left Nottingham University reading Russian and English Studies.  I joined this community because I love reading but never seem to find enough time for it and I also find it hard to find books I really like as most books I try to read are either too hard or too easy for me,  it's sohard to get the balance right between something that's a good read and a challenge and something that just makes you want to throw the book into a far corner (eg Ulysses).  My favourite books/authors are Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, Regeneration by Pat Barker and The Remains of the Day  and The Unconsoled by Ishiguro but there are others I've read and have quite enjoyed but couldn't read many times over like Arnold Bennett's Anna of the Five Towns, Guterson's Snow Falling on Cedars and Camus' The Fall and The Outsider.   There are so many authors I haven't read yet though so  I thought I could get some ideas here.
