The Classics Club has started the year with its inuaugural 24-hour read-athon. I will not be able to participate in the entire event as I have a social engagement in the evening, but I can still read during the day. I've been up since 9am and have already read two chapters of Persuasion before breakfast.
Name and Blog: My name is Julia and I blog at the Right Broad
Snacks and Beverages of Choice: Sunkist and Oreos
Where are you reading from today? The cushy loveseat mostly
What are your goals for the Readathon?
My main goal to catch up on the Persuasion read-a-long, but I'd like to work on some other books on my list.
What book(s) are you planning on reading?
Persuasion by Jane Austen: I'm reading this for the Unputdownables read-a-long. I was behind by a few chapters by our first checkpoint so I wanted to get up to date
Idylls of the King by Alfred Lord Tennyson: I've owned this for awhile, but I've not read as much of it as I'd like. They are some long poems, but I can easily break them down into sections during the day.
Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde: Over the Christmas break I listened to Big Finish's wonderful audio drama, Confessions of Dorian Gray, about the further adventures of Oscar Wilde's most infamous character. So I was curious about the original. I think I had to read it once for class, but wasn't too impressed with it.
Are you excited?
YES! Very excited.
