Consider this thread a spot to declare one's personal challenge to read further or differently or deeper into her work; to reread something read ages ago; or to read something you've been meaning to get to... Declare it here and keep us posted. No pressure, no real timetable, no Atwood literary police will visit your home if you fail...
I, personally, would like to challenge myself to reread at least one of her earlier novels, written sometime prior to the mid-1980s. Title to be announced.
I am about a third through Lady Oracle and I am really enjoying it. Much like The Blind Assassin, there are many stories and I sometimes forget that scenes I remember are from the same book. That phenomenon always makes me feel I've had a rich reading experience, like getting extra quantity and quality for your buck!
Any suggestions for the best place to start?
The touchstone is leading to the wrong edition of the book - if you search you'll find the ordinary paperback copy shared by 84 other LT readers.
Someone who owns one or the other of these titles might like to have the pleasure of clicking separate
for me, the task will be to tackle Cat's Eye and The Robber Bride, both of which I have but have not yet read.

Hi Avaland, it's simple. Look at the Margaret Atwood author page. At the top of the list of books where you see Books by Margaret Atwood (combine/separate works), click on the (combine/separate works) and you will be taken to another page where all the Margaret Atwood works are listed in alphabetic order. This is a great page just for looking for Atwood's books btw. You will see that the works The journals of Susanna Moodie and Writing with intent : essays, reviews, personal prose, 1983-2005 are fine now, at least they were when I went to look just now. The slightly different titles versions, editions, and translations all belong under the work titles. If you ever find a stray, you click on (separate) at the end of the line, and its will be removed from that work.
Look though, at the LT work for Wilderness Tips. Someone has combined the title of one of the short stories with the book. That is plain wrong. I've left this together for the time being, so that you can have a chance to see this, and hope others will do the same.
Look also at the works Cat's Eye. There is large group of Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood and a single copy of Cat's Eye entered in LT as by Atwood, Margaret. These should be together as one work. To combine these, click the box to the left of each work to be combined, then go to the top ( or the bottom ) of the page and click the 'combine' button. You will get a query back, do you wish to combine, with the titles so you have a chance to change your mind if you've made a mistake.
