Since Joffre has decided to leave us, there is no longer any reason for any of our reading to be "outside" our "regular" plan. Therefore, I propose The Last Chronicle of Barset and Martin Chuzzlewit, both of which we have previously discussed, as two of my books. I also plan to re-read The Dream of the Red Chamber, also known as The Story of the Stone, during 2019, and I may also try to re-read The Tale of Genji. Both would be in different translations from what I read 30 or 40 years ago. Do you have any interest in either of these? I hope to someday read all four of the Great Chinese Fiction Classics (plus The Plum in the Golden Vase), just as I plan to have read (at least once) all of Dickens' novels. Does any of this sound like something you'd want to read?
