It's almost September! It's time once again for our new calendar for Read the Nobels.
If this is the first time you're hearing about this, these calendar wallpapers are a fun monthly project I cooked up for myself and is a sneaky way of promoting the Read the Nobels Reading Challenge for 2016. I select an author who has won the Nobel Prize in Literature, a book cover, and a quote.
This month, I am featuring 1921 Nobel Prize Laureate Anatole France. I noticed that on Read the Nobels, there was only one book reviewed. I'm going to keep this simple, let you gawk at the vintage cover, and click on the links below.
You can read some of his work here:
- Our Children by Anatole France on Project Gutenberg
- Anatole France - List of Works (free on Project Gutenberg)
