I've been meaning to write this post for simply weeks now, but other things keep taking precedence. No more! I hereby confirm that yes, I am going to host a read-along of Little Women, and yes, it will begin on March 1.
Like this banner says, it will probably take us several months to make our leisurely way through Little Women. There are almost 50 chapters, and I usually manage to write a new chapter post every 2 to 3 days, so... yeah. Not a slender tome!
In case you're wondering, let me tell you about how I run a read-along. Obviously, we all read the same book at the same time. I will do a blog post about each chapter, where I review what happened and post some of my thoughts on it. I usually include a favorite passage or two, and a question for discussion. Participants then get to comment on the blog posts as they please, and we have some lovely discussions that way. If you want to see exactly how it all works, feel free to check out one of my previous read-alongs here.
There's no official sign-up sheet or anything, and I know lots of people have already expressed their interest on this page. But if you think you want to participate, or just think it's a cool idea and want to spread the word, feel free to put one of these buttons on your own blog:
