Nightmare Abbey

I've launched an online reading club, with the idea of reading nineteenth-century pieces and then just chatting a bit online about them. For now, my goal is that they all be available on Librivox so that we can listen while knitting or sewing.

For the first month, I've picked Nightmare Abbey by Thomas Love Peacock. Free audio book is here. I'm about six chapters in and it's a pretty fun read. He really pokes fun at universities.

Feel free to join in. In future months, I hope to cover some slave narratives, women's diaries, and more fiction. I'm open to suggestions.
