KBK Bookclub (January 13th) | The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

in KBK4 months ago (edited)


I am glad to announce that the book chosen for the next KBK Bookclub meeting is "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald! The winning book was proposed by myself and supported by @szmulkberg, @hallmann and @lpa. Another proposal was submitted by @gwyddpel but received no preferences. I remind you that it's possible to re-propose a book as many times as you wish!

The meeting shall take place at @krolestwo on January 13th 2023 at 19.00 (second Saturday of next month). The discussion will be held in English, but you are free to read the book in whatever language suits you best.

If you are curious about how the Bookclub is run, @przeczytaj presents all the details of the project. Have a read!

One of my favorite books of all time, and a book every man must read in his life. I have already read it like seven times, and even did a recommendation of it here in 2021. I saw the Robert Redford movie adaptation of the 1970s but haven’t seen the one with Leo DiCaprio of 2013, nor I intent to do so. Nice to see this book here.
