Reynolds Stone was born in 1909 and died in 1979. Perhaps best known for his wood engravings, he was also a painter, designer (with public commissions for stamps and bank notes), and letterer in stone (Sir Winston Churchill's memorial in Westminster Abbey). Pritchett and Stone were close personal friends.

Currently reading, will update with individual story reviews as I complete them. I was going to do this in the private notes field, but I didn't realize it was character limited until I hit a wall, lol.


THE TWO DROVERS (Sir Walter Scott)
3 stars - I did end up liking it somewhat, but it was very hard to get into at the start.

THE BIRTHMARK (Nathaniel Hawthorne)
2 stars - Look, I get what he's doing in this story and the Message Behind It, but I just couldn't find either character likable, though I did feel very sorry for Georgiana. Also I just kind of don't like Hawthorne that much so maybe I'm biased.

THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER (Edgar Allan Poe)
5 stars - Love Poe, love this story. Definitely did not pick up the implications about the Usher family when I last read this probably more than a decade ago so that was certainly a shocker.
