That is my only explanation for what I am about to tell you.
You see, there is another readalong going on in February and March, and its on that lovely book we all cower in front of-yes, James Joyce's Ulysses. It is the only big scary book that I wasn't going to tackle in 2010, but since this is the year of insanity, I have decided to go for it.
I know that I will regret this decision eventually. Because not only am I starting this monster in February, I will also be finishing War and Peace, reading all of Oliver Twist, and starting Atlas Shrugged in March.
Yes, my name is Allie and I am addicted to readalongs.
There are worse things, right?
In any case the plan is to read the following parts and post starting at the end of Week 1 (the first week of Feb.):
- End of week 1: thoughts on Section 1, chapters 1-3.
- End of week 3: this is midway through Section 2, through chapter 9.
- End of week 5: thoughts on Section 2, through chapter 15.
- End of week 6: Section 3, end of book.
