Just found #draculadaily and I'm so excited!!! I've been wanting an excuse to try Dracula since I learned about the Rosenbach's Sundays with Dracula from the beginning of the pandemic, so finding Dracula Daily was perfect! I've been catching up today and am already hooked. 🧛🏻‍♂️

1) no; but I dream whole stories. When I wrote one of them for college creative writing, the prof said it was my best writing yet. I should write more of them down. I even remember some of these dreams as if they‘re books

2) tagged (I‘m weird)

3) sigh, surgery in 2 weeks on my elbow—so getting my books organized today has helped me prepare for downtime to read

Want to play @Nute @GingerAntics @KristiAhlers @Catsandbooks ?

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks That‘s so cool 😴 6d
GingerAntics Oh no, what‘s up with your elbow?! Elbow injuries are the worst. You never realise how many movements jostle, tense, or somehow involve your elbow until the bloody thing hurts to move. Worst injury ever. I‘ve dreamed whole chapters of stories as well. I always try to write them down. I actually have the paperback of Dracula. I‘ve never read it though. I can‘t remember if I was supposed to read it for a class or not. 😬 6d
TheBookHippie I read Dracula every October with students 🖤 6d

TheBookHippie And owie… sending healing vibes for speedy recovery!!! 6d
Catsandbooks Good luck with the elbow surgery!! 6d
Texreader @GingerAntics @TheBookHippie @Catsandbooks Thanks for your kind wishes. I have a torn something (tendon/ligament?) in the elbow that will be removed. It feels like a knife is embedded in it and it even hurts to the touch (even breeze from a fan on it ratchets up the pain). Second surgery in 4 months! But I desperately cannot wait for this one. I‘m in so much pain it‘s almost unbearable. 6d
GingerAntics @Texreader oh god that sounds terrible!!! I hope this surgery stops all that pain. Holy crap. 6d
Catsandbooks @Texreader oh ouch! That sounds terrible! I hope this surgery brings you much needed relief! 6d

I was honestly not anticipating having this much fun reading Dracula, but I am LOVING it! I actually got a hard copy so that I can follow along/kind of see what is coming next, so I wasn't expecting to get another email until May 12, Jonathan's next entry. However, the SubStack is putting everything in chronological order instead of sticking strictly to the book order - so this letter from Mina appeared today even though it isn't until the next ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) chapter. I have somewhat mixed feelings about this, but think that on the whole I'm willing to roll with it. 😂 What do you all think?? #DraculaDaily

PuddleJumper Oh that's interesting! I didn't realize they were going to jiggle things around like that. It makes it a different way to read the book 1w
BookwormAHN I've read the book a few times so this will be interesting and I like the fact that's its not strick with the book's format. 1w
Maggie4483 I don‘t know how I feel about that either. I think If I‘d already read Dracula, I‘d probably love it. My only concern as a first time reader would be that big events may not have the same impact out of the order Stoker wrote it in. I‘m still going to stick to it, though! (edited) 1w
Clare-Dragonfly Oh wow, I think that‘s really cool! I wish I‘d read Dracula more than once before so I could really appreciate the difference, but I‘ll roll with it. It‘s kind of like how sometimes I reread the Narnia books in publication order, and sometimes in chronological order 😁 1w

Did you all get your first installment of #DraculaDaily today? I honestly cracked up when I saw the introductory tagline! 😂 I am genuinely excited to read this classic in “real time“!

For those who missed it, someone on Substack is sending out Dracula on the days that match the journals, letters, etc. Link below!!

An interesting way to describe dracula, or the vampire lore. Halfway through the book and the third act is getting better and better.

So someone over on substack is sending out the entire book of Dracula via email ***on the day each event happens in the book***!! I've never actually read this one, but apparently it's an epistolary novel?? (Didn't know this) So... the entire book has dates for each section, and the person hosting this sends you that section of the book on the correct day. The book starts May 3 & ends Nov 10, and so do the emails - check it out here (it's free!!)⬇

Do let me know if any of you sign up - this just seems like such a fun way to read a book!!!

@LitsyEvents - this isn't an official Litsy event, but still may be worth reposting??
KristiAhlers I have read this before but I‘m totally down to read it again! I just signed up! This will be fun. And maybe I‘ll get more out of the story this way! 3w
Cortg Ooooh, how fun! I haven't read this yet, but have wanted to. I signed up with my work email so I can read it when I'm on the info desk during quiet lulls 😂 3w

The Historian | Elizabeth Kostova

Very informative. Long-winded, reads like a Victor Hugo novel--but shares a lot of historical facts and inspires wanderlust. It can get confusing on who's perspective you're reading when there's stories within stories within letters.
