Checkin In...Jane Eyre Read-Along...

January 18, 2011
Well, I have to say that I am definitely enjoying my first experience with read-alongs...thanks to Allie at A Literary Odyssey! I love examining the similarities and differences that various readers find in the same novel. I have also enjoyed discovering a variety of new blogs through this process. I finished Rebecca January 4th and The Woman in White January 7th. I am looking forward to when our final posts go up for these two novels around January 28th. Now, I am busy working my way through War and Peace. I am currently hovering around page 400. Only about 800 more pages to go!

As stated in a comments post attached to my original pondering, I have officially added Jane Eyre to my reading list! And, I have decided to participate in a Jane Eyre read-along over at She is Too Fond of Books. Here is the schedule:

March  4 - 18: Chapters 1 - 9
March 18 - April 1: Chapters 10 -17
April 1 - 15: Chapters 18 - 23
April 15 - 29: Chapters 24 - 29
April 29 - May 13 Chapters 30 - 36
May 13 - 27: Chapters 37 - 38 (Conclusion)

Please, join us! I am also happy to report that I have decided to purchase the lovely Penguin cloth bound edition of Jane Eyre since with store coupons and member discounts I can purchase it for under $13! Yippee! Hope you all are having a great start to the New Year!

You're the read-along queen! I can't believe you did three at the same time and kept up with all of them. I'm impressed.

I hope you enjoy Jane Eyre, and that edition you bought is beautiful. Good luck!
