cambridge english reading listsWatch
Last year I got mine at Easter. The content varies from college to college as everyone does different papers at different times.
Most people had read about 10 books of the period and some extras. FOr the following terms you read during the holiday for the next term's work: so holiday jobs over christmas and easter aren't plausible. Plus there is revision to do over easter!
before you go up in october to start the undergrad course, do they send you a general list of books? my ppe oxford friend was told to read dostoevsky...
if there is such a list, is it the same for all colleges, or do they differ? this would be interesting and might help people choose their colleges better. like if king's is really a red hotbed do they get you to read marx and dickens- whereas in trinity you read virginia woolf and leavis?
Could anyone post an actual reading list? It would be interesting to see what is on it!
I expect the supervisors haven't decided what they want to teach you - everything is kind of free-and-easy (in some senses) at Cambridge. Stop stressing, you'll have plenty of time.
Oh, and my reading speed has increased since I've been here. I read 700 pages of bleak house in a day - pretty good going eh?

The fudge is really nice and flavoursome - but it's rather insubstantial. Roly's doesn't melt away into nothing so quickly.
