If anyone is interested in a #buddyread of the following over the next few years, I'll be looking for company in my masochism.

Ulysses
Crime & Punishment
Infinite Jest
S. (Ship of Theseus)
Other exhausting book-mountains!!!

Who says reading has to be fun??

Join me! #torturedpoetsbookclub

P.S. I am not reading House of Leaves again.

The latest installment in the Mr Darcy & Miss Tilney Mystery series was released today! Would any #pemberlittens be interested in a chapter-a-day read along like we did for the first two? I don't mind leading the charge. We could start July 1st - there are 25 chapters so we'd finish within the month. Let me know!

I‘m only about 1/4 through, but I‘m enjoying this book focusing on the women of The Trojan War. The story is still driven by men, but one could say that that is a reflection of what little power these strong women had.

Librarybelle So true! 5d

Thanks so much Lindy for hosting this #buddyread - as others have said, slowing down really enriched this read for me, I read Les Mis last year by doing a chapter a day (pleasingly, it‘s 365 chapters) but I enjoyed even more doing this in step with other readers and getting to share thoughts and opinions!

I was disappointed not to get a last minute twist in the main storyline but nevertheless really enjoyed this one!

Lindy Beka, it‘s been a true pleasure reading this book together with lovely people like you. 🤗 5d
squirrelbrain I did think it fizzled out slightly at the end, but maybe leaving it open for the sequel, that never happened? 5d
