Reading Stoner by John Williams

Friday, April 15, 2016

I am finally about to start this novel, Stoner, written by American author, John Williams. This has been on my to-be-read list for a while now, but just haven't gotten to it until I found myself in the bookstore last weekend, locking eyes with a copy of this 1965 novel. It was a used paperback, and it looked like it was in pretty good shape, so I bought it.

I will be reading along with other readers through Instagram, which I think will make reading this classic novel more fun. Together we will be using the hashtag #SundayswithStoner, which basically means we will take the time to discuss the chapters with each other. I feel like it's the kind of book that can be incredibly engaging and can spark different perspectives. If you have already read this book, what did you think of it? Let me know your thoughts, without spoilers of course.


  1. Stoner is one of my all-time favorite books... a quiet, beautifully-written character study. Enjoy!

  2. I have had this on my tbr list for years. I will be following along to see what you think of it!

  3. Take every chance you get in life, because some things only happen once
