This will be the second year I have participated in this challenge. I think it is a very well run challenge. This year I will focus on Colette. I will read more Virginia Woolf, Oscar Wilde and Yukio Mishima also. My blog will always be focused on Katherine Mansfield also. I just discovered via reading Susan Sontag's "Notes on Camp", Ronald Firbanks and I hope to read him in 2011. I read a bit of him online earlier today and loved it. If anyone knows where I can read a lot of his work on line please leave a comment. He is now public domain. I think once you read him you will for sure wonder where he has been all your literary life.

Oscar Wilde Challenge
Melissa at Armchair Archives is hosting the first Oscar Wilde reading challenge. I have read The Picture of Dorian Grey a couple of times and some of the plays. I recently got into his short stories and hope to read a few more of them this year. They are quite good if you have not read them.

I am signing up for these challenges to have fun, learn about some new books, support the international community of book bloggers and to continue to build my contacts.
I thank the hosts of these challenges for their efforts and look forward to reading the great reviews from other participants.
