Joining Amy's 50 Books for Our Times Reading Project

My Friend Amy is challenging fifty-ish bloggers to read Newsweek's 50 Books For Our Times. One book per blogger. (If more bloggers want in, and all fifty books are already taken then each book may have two readers.)

The goal is to have all fifty books read and reviewed this year. Amy will be writing a recap post at the end of the year...

My book is Anthony Trollope's The Way We Live Now.
