Jazz Age June: A Reading Event

2020 is the 100th anniversary of the publication of The Great Gatsby, which, in Literature, is the epitome of The Jazz Age or the Roaring Twenties. Early this year Laurie and I have discussed about the possibility of hosting a reading event, but then the pandemic came, and I, for one, have been struggling with reading and blogging. Nevertheless, we thought it would be an exciting distraction to our present condition, and so we decided to - borrowing Cole Porter's song - Let's Do It!

01-30 June 2020

It's very simple; just READ any book published between 1920 to 1929.

Blog your reading, add link to your post in Laurie's blog, and share it in social media with hashtag #JazzAgeJune.

You can also accompany your reading by discussing 1920s musics, movies, arts, fashion, or just anything related to the Jazz Age.

Easy and fun, right?

Don't know where to start? Just check on Laurie's post for more reading ideas. 

I will be reading Fitzgerald's Flappers and Philosiphers, and maybe.. This Side of Paradise.


  1. Sounds like a lot of fun....even if I do say so myself :) !!

    Thanks for teaming up. I am looking forward to everyone's contribution.

    1. Indeed, I forgot to include my movies rewatching plan, which is perhaps slightly more exciting :)

  2. Ooh. I should be able to find something to match this! I'll have to look & see.

    1. Oh you should find it easy! You could even include movies, if you don't find any suitable book. Or just pick any Agatha Christie's books!
