Download October @ReadNobels Wallpaper featuring Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot

September's ended - time to change up our calendar for Read the Nobels.

If this is the first time you're hearing about this, these calendar wallpapers are a fun monthly project I cooked up for myself and is a sneaky way of promoting the Read the Nobels Reading Challenge for 2016. I select an author who has won the Nobel Prize in Literature, a book cover, and a quote.

I have been making slow progress with the challenge but it is still very much on my mind. The Read the Nobels blog continues to get a slow but steady stream of reviews and visits. How are you doing with the challenge?

For October, I am featuring 1969 Nobel Prize Laureate Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot (In French: En Attendent en Godot). I admit that I know little about this Irish born author who entered the literary world via Paris and wrote in French! Waiting on Godot, a play published in 1952, is subtitled "a tragicomedy on two acts."

If the title seems familiar,  it has been made into a movie (see below) and a play (starring Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart!).

On the Read the Nobels blog, only two of Beckett's works have been reviewed so far, namely Worstward Ho and Endgame. 

You can read more about Beckett and his work here:
