Moby-Dick | Herman Melville
post image

My slightly over-the-top August TBR. 🙈🙈🙈📚 Good news is that The Goldfinch and Moby-Dick are both read alongs that are more than one month in length. Bad news is that I still have 300 pages to go in The Magic Mountain 😬. I will finish it!

mcipher The Goldfinch! So so so good. 6mo
HardcoverHearts I‘m delighted at how effective buddy reads and read alongs are for getting to the really weighty and intimidating works that I‘ve always wanted to get to but was nervous. 😬 6mo
SharonGoforth @mcipher I can‘t wait to read it! 6mo

MelissaSue81 Those are some LOOOOOONG books!
SharonGoforth @HardcoverHearts Yes! My problem is there are so many that I want to do, and I seem to be incapable of picking and choosing! 6mo
SharonGoforth @MelissaSue81 The page count is insane!! 6mo
Leftcoastzen I‘m almost always in the same boat, I end up with too many #chunksters all at once. 6mo
SharonGoforth @Leftcoastzen Exactly!! ⛵️ 6mo
Lcsmcat Great TBR! I‘ve loved a lot of those. And you‘ll find The Magic Mountain speeds up as you near the end. Those last pages speed by! 6mo
SharonGoforth @Lcsmcat Thanks! I‘m still in the middle of Naphta and Settembrini, and it‘s a little confusing trying to keep their philosophies straight. I really like the way Mann presents both points of view, though, and then bounces them off Hans Castorp as a sort of sounding board. 6mo
Lcsmcat @SharonGoforth Their arguments do get eye crossing! Naphta in particular annoyed me, but things get really crazy between those two near the end. I think a clear idea of their philosophies is less important than the reaction of Hans, who bounces from idea to idea depending on who is influencing him at any given moment. 6mo
SharonGoforth @Lcsmcat Lol, like a game of ping pong 🏓! 6mo
Lcsmcat @SharonGoforth Or pinball! 6mo
charl08 Good luck! 6mo
SharonGoforth @charl08 Thanks!! 6mo
DivineDiana Do you know who is doing #thegoldfinchreadalong? 6mo
SharonGoforth @Lcsmcat Brona - she‘s @brona68 on Instagram and @bronasbooks on Twitter. The Twitter hashtag is #MobyDickReadalong. Hope you‘ll join in!!! 6mo
Lcsmcat I think you meant to tag @DivineDiana on this one. I‘m 50 pages from finishing An American Tragedy, and after that I‘m going to read a few thinner books before my next chunkster! 6mo
SharonGoforth @Lcsmcat @DivineDiana You‘re right!! I‘m so sorry!! 6mo
Lcsmcat @SharonGoforth No apology needed. I read Moby Dick years ago, and while good literature is always worth rereading I‘m not ready this time for the 🐳. 6mo

Moby Dick: bl velryba | Melville Herman

On my blog this August #MobyDickReadalong
My plan is to read a chapter of the book then listen to the matching podcast episode from the Moby Dick Big Read.

Saknicole I liked your hashtag idea in your blog post. Unfortunately my sister helped me decide on a much cruder one for my reading. Good luck! I'm about 25% done and it's certainly enticing so far! 7mo
