  1. I wish you The Watch Tower Sue – it’s a wonderful book – deliciously creepy and unsettliing.
    I like how you’re tackling the Dream of the Red chamber too – one dream at a time. I might have to consider that as an option too otherwise it will sit on my tbr pile forever!


    1. Ha – yes! I read a condensed version of Dream of the Red Chamber many years ago when I was studying Chinese at university. I now have a 5 volume Penguin Classics set that is called “The Story of the Stone” – they are all very long but I have only read the first one so far. I have tried reading The Watchtower once before but wasn’t in the mood – better luck next time.
