I have read Frankenstein one time in my life and it was not a happy experience. I read it for a British literature class in college and I so disliked the teaching assistant who was assigned to me that I had anxiety over every assignment and struggled to care. I have recollections of liking the book and being fascinated by how it is so different from any of the films made from it, but I still, sadly, think of that condescending, jerky TA when I think of Frankenstein. Maybe I should read it again to banish him from my mind! If I were to read Frankenstein again I think I’d like to own a copy of No. 1 – I love the cover. Which Frankenstein cover do you like?
In other news – my June trip to Italy has been postponed. The friend who I am traveling with had a setback with her childcare arrangements and so we are unable to go next month. I’m disappointed, but we’ve decided to go in October instead – five more months to save money and plan!
