F. Scott in 2012

Before I started this blog, I toyed with the idea of reading the entire cannon of an author in a year. I couldn't figure out quite who I wanted to read, so I didn't pursue this in 2011. Recently, though, I figured out who I wanted to read, or rather re-read. F Scott Fitzgerald is one of my favorite authors and I haven't read some of his works in almost a decade.

So....during the year of 2012, I am going to read it all. I would love for you to join me!

Here is the schedule:

This Side of Paradise
Flappers and Philosophers (stories)
The Beautiful and the Damned
Tales of the Jazz Age (stories)
The Vegetable (play)
All the Sad Young Men (stories)
The Great Gatsby
Tender is the Night
Taps at Reveille (stories)
The Last Tycoon (unfinished)
Save the Last Waltz
Catch Up!

I will be posting on the selection at the end of each month and would love for you to join in the discussion. At the end of each post, I will put a linky up so we can see all of each other's thoughts.  Please leave a comment at the bottom of this post  if you would like to participate. Feel free to grab the picture of the gentlemen himself and put it on your blog. If you have questions, leave them in the comments and I promise to get back to you. 


  1. What a great idea! I love Gatsby but I remember struggling with Tender is the Night in high school - which is on my list to-read because I feel like I'd appreciate it more now. I may have to join in on some of your reads. Thanks!

  2. I love this idea! I have The Beautiful and the Damned on my tbr so will definitely join you for that and maybe a few more.
