Survey monkey says, Edith Wharton is up next. I‘m going to tag all the #catherbuddyread folks, but please let @Graywacke and me know if you want off the list, or if you‘re not tagged and want on. The Mount, Wharton‘s home, has a website with a list of her published works here: https://www.edithwharton.org/discover/published-works/ The earlier are in the public domain (in the US at least) and can be found at Project Gutenberg.

Lcsmcat Is July a good time to start, to let everyone get the book? 7mo
jewright I love Edith Wharton! I‘ve been out of the loop. Which book are we starting? 7mo

Lcsmcat @jewright The Touchstone is first on the list at The Mount, so unless someone has another plan, let‘s start with that. 7mo
Lcsmcat And we need a new hashtag! Ideas? 7mo
CarolynM July is good for me. Looking forward to reading my first Wharton🙂 Thanks Linda 7mo
Tamra I wish I could because I sooo love Wharton! 7mo
Lcsmcat @Tamra We tend to spread things out (we spent 2 years on Cather‘s novels) so feel free to join us when you can. Do you want to stay on the list? 7mo
batsy Thank you for this! I'm fine with July too as The Touchstone is available on Gutenberg and that's great :) 7mo
Currey I‘m in for July but wonder if we should start with Fast and Loose which the Mount mentions as her first book even if they did put it at the bottom of the list. Perhaps it is not available. I did not look. 7mo
Tamra @Lcsmcat yes, please! 7mo
Lcsmcat @Currey Fast and Loose was written first, but published last. https://www.nytimes.com/1993/10/17/books/finishing-off-edith-wharton.html so I think it‘s still under copyright. But it is available in paperback if the group wishes to start with it. 7mo
Currey @Lcsmcat Oh, got it. Happy to start with The touchstone then 7mo
Graywacke Thanks @Lcsmcat ! July is great for me. Either novel is ok, but if we do F&L we may want to save extra time for book deliveries (curious title). I‘m getting excited. Hashtags - hmm 🤔 7mo
Graywacke From Wikipedia: “in 1877, at the age of 15, she secretly wrote a 30,000 word novella Fast and Loose.” Based off that line, and considering she didn‘t publish another novella until she was ~38… I‘m thinking i would rather read F&L after i have read other novels. 7mo
Lcsmcat @Graywacke @currey I think it might be better to save F&L for when we can appreciate its potential, after we‘ve got a feel for Wharton‘s style. 7mo
rubyslippersreads July and The Touchstone are fine with me. 7mo
arubabookwoman Thanks for setting this up! I love Edith Wharton, and thought I had read most of her novels, but I see there are a lot I've missed, and most of the ones I've read I want to reread. See you all in July. 7mo
Louise Thank you for organizing this. I‘m looking forward to exploring Wharton‘s work with all of you. 7mo
mdm139 July and Touchstone are fine with me too, thanks for organizing 7mo
Graywacke I splurged $1 plus tax for my Kindle copy. What day in July did you have in mind? 7mo
Lcsmcat @Graywacke The last of the big spenders 😀! I just emailed you some organizational questions. 7mo
