The Iris Project

It was a lot of fun reading all the novels of Graham Greene in 2014/15, but having completed my Greeneland challenge, I'm itching to get off to new adventures.

 

For the next project, I am planning to explore the works of Iris Murdoch. I'm not sure, yet, that I'll read all of her books. At least, I am going to commit to reading the ones I already own.

 

Years ago, I picked up a stack of Murdoch's books from a secondhand book shop, and although I have read a few of them, most are still sitting on my shelf. It's time.

 

 

 

So, without further hesitation, here we go...

 

No time limit, no rules, no particular order - this is just for the plain fun of it.
