Chronicles, chronicles

Last night I finished The Small House at Allington, the fifth novel in Anthony Trollope’s Barsetshire Chronicles. When I finish the final novel, I will feel that I have accomplished something–I think. You can blame the Amazon Kindle for getting me into the Trollope reading project. Kindle offers the classics for free, or for next to nothing. Nine books for $0.99? Who can resist that? But sometimes problems present themselves. I love John Galsworthy’s The Forsyte Saga and have read and reread it over time. But I never read the last 3 novels, collectively known as The End of the Chapter. Imagine my horror when I realized that I would have to scroll through the first six novels in order to get to the three I wanted to read. If there is a way to avoid that, I haven’t found it. I suppose the next time I feel like reading the Forsyte Saga–next year, maybe?– I’ll finally get to The End of the Chapter.
