Our next book in the 1000 Books Project: Non-Fiction 2020 is The Sagas of the Icelanders. This will be an April, May, June read-along. However, I am flexible because I realize life happens. Case in point, our first foray, Herodotus' The Histories proved very difficult for me, especially in the home stretch, as I'm craving escapist reading now considering what is currently going on in our world. Perhaps The Sagas will be a bit more escapist than dry old Herodotus.
The book I'm reading is the edition with a Preface by Jane Smiley (a favorite of mine...her 13 Ways of Looking at a Novel was part of the inspiration for one of the perpetual reading challenges I also host on this blog).
Here's the cover image for reference:
I'm going to break this up in two parts (see post about schedule changes here).
Read for first discussion on
Preface, Introduction, etc. through The Saga of the People of Vatnsdal, pp. ix - 269

Note: I did not include the Reference Section in this schedule
