Bleak House Read-a-Long and Self-Imposed Read-a-Thon results

So, my self-imposed read-a-thon did not go as well as I'd hoped.  I did manage to read The Rebel Wife by Taylor M. Polites--294 pages--(REVIEW) and I made some progress in The Crown by Nancy Bilyeau.  Did not read any of Gone with the Wind, The Secret History, or Macbeth. =O(  We are going to stay at the Opryland Hotel today/tonight and I'm not taking my computer (you're shocked, I know) so I'm hoping I can get some reading done tonight after we go back to the room.


Bleak House Read-a-Long


March, April, May...hosted by Wallace at Unputdownables.  I have been wanting to read this one for a while now.  Really looking forward to it!

Details:

  • You do not have to be a book blogger to join.
  • We will be reading the book in March, April, & May (13 weeks), with the first discussion happening on Friday, March 2nd / the book is 817 pages (paperback, Barnes and Noble Classics edition) so that’s roughly 9 pages a day.
  • Don’t be intimidated. We will be going at a slow pace and discussing the book throughout our reading. The discussions are quite fun, and make the reading process very enjoyable!

  1. You mentioning the Opryland Hotel really makes me miss Nashville. I was stationed at Fort Campbell for 2 yrs and spent a lot of weekends in Nashville (mostly at the mall). Hope to go back some day.

    Can't wait to see what you think of The Crown. I loved it!

Your comments mean a lot. I will mostly likely respond to them here in the comments. If you ask a specific question, I will try to respond in an email (if I can access your email through your blogger profile).

Please do not be offended, but this is an award free blog. While I appreciate the gesture, believe me when I say that your friendship is award enough. Thank you.
