I feel like Charles Dickens is a good winter read, so this will start in the fall and run to spring 2013. Yes, that's a long time. Here's the theory: Dickens originally published this book in 20 installments. I'm going to follow that schedule. Dickens was a big proponent of the cliffhanger, so it makes sense to follow his lead. I thought about doubling up on it, like I did with Our Mutual Friend earlier this year, but that can make for a lot of reading. Following the original schedule exactly makes for a fairly easy read-along, with most weeks only having 3-4 chapters.In addition, I'll take a break for the last two weeks of December, so people can take a breather if they need to. (Might be a good time to revisit A Christmas Carol.) The read-along will be done before the end of March.
So here's what I propose: read and blog/comment on the following chapters on the following dates. Who's with me??
