Ulysses Read Along

The BookDepository

U jj edDovegreyreader is encouraging everyone to join her in tackling Ulysses. I’m afraid that I cannot resist these joint reads, and so have decided to read along.

We are only planning to read two pages a day, which sounds really easy. I have signed up to DailyLit, who send you an email each day with the next installment of the book. I received my first two pages of the book this morning, and was impressed with how quick and easy it was to read them. I think this is a great way to tackle those daunting classics.

Dovegreyreader is going to host a discussion on the 16th of every month.

Do you fancy joining us?

Have you ever read Ulysses?

Am I mad?!

    I haven’t read Ulysses, but considering I have yet to get more than ten pages into 2666, I think I’m going to have to sit this one out.

  2. Claire says:

    Wow, you’ve started already?! I’m taking part but I haven’t even contemplated starting yet.

  3. Jackie says:

    Christina – LOL!! I think Ulysses is going to be a lot tougher than 2666. Are you still planning to read 2666?

    Claire – I’ve only read the first two pages! I did that just to check I could mange to get through them before committing to doing the read along. I’m pleased you are joining in too!

    I’m afraid you may be mad. ;-)

    I was just wondering if someone would start of Ulysses read-a-long soon. I think I’m going to stick to one at a time for now myself. Tale of Genji is going to take a while.

    I am one episode away from finishing Ulysses. I have been posting my thoughts on the book each Saturday and will be posting again later today.

    I saw the post on dovegreyreader and wanted to join, but I promised myself not to join any reading challenges for next year because I would like to go absolutely stress- and challenge-free next year! I’m pushing myself this year as a trial only. I really miss reading on a whim. However, I will be following you all along as I might read along but with no real commitment. Good luck!

  7. megan says:

    I could totally read two pages a day. Am very seriously considering it!

  8. Jackie says:

    CBJames – The Genji readalong will be finished in a few months, leaving you plenty of time to catch up with Ulysses, which doesn’t finish until this time next year!!

    pussreboots – Great! I’ll have a look for your posts.

    Claire – I’m not going to be signing up to many chaleenges next year, but I love read alongs, so will join all that interest me!

    megan – Give it a try!!It only takes a few minutes each day!

    I dug mine out this morning! It is looking at me with evil intent… or is that just my imagination?
