Fab review of 1984 by @JuanReads (a go-to channel for classic book reviews!)

In depth discussion of Sorrow and Bliss from @Bob The Bookerer

An interview with Louise Erdrich, in the bookstore The Sentence is based in, which explains what Erdrich was wanting to explore.

Excellent video from @Hannah’s Books discussing different translations of Sappho

An… interesting review of The Death of Francis Bacon by @KDBooks

Fabulous review of Dracula by @Alana Estelle

And finally, very interesting look at Less with @TheBookchemist

Think that’s everything!

Thanks so much for watching!
