Everyone should have a project for the summer months. I have plenty of writing projects all ready, but I thought I should have a reading one too. Not just that list of books I want to read and plan to work my way through, something a bit more… structured. Which I can write about here.
And I’ve come up with just the thing. I have on my book-shelves three quintets I really want to read – and which, coincidentally, I have to date only read the first book of each. The quintets are:-
The Canopus in Argos Archives, Doris Lessing
- The Marriages Between Zones Three, Four and Five
- The Sirian Experiments
- The Making of the Representative for Planet 8
- The Sentimental Agents in the Volyen Empire
The Bold as Love Cycle, Gwyneth Jones
The Marq’ssan Cycle, L Timmel Duchamp
Starting in July, I’m going to work my way through the fifteen books listed above. I’ll decide once I’ve begun whether to post per book or per quintet.
