I’m so very excited to be hosting my first read-along. For the last Classics Club spin, a number of us all placed Anne Bronte’s classic, Agnes Grey, on the same position on our lists and crossed our fingers that it would be selected. It wasn’t, but I kept thinking that I would love to read Agnes with those lovely bloggers, and hence, a read-along was proposed.
We will be reading Agnes Grey during the month of February, and I will be hosting a weekly summary post with my own thoughts and impressions of the novel. I have never read Agnes Grey, or any of Anne’s writing before, so you will have to forgive my uneducated opinions.
So I’m inviting everyone and anyone to join in – read Agnes Grey in February! The following is the schedule – but feel free to be involved in all or none of these milestones, this is a VERY low stress group read.
I will most likely be tweeting general impressions (spoiler free) on twitter as I read. I will use the hashtag #AggieGrey if you wish to join in the conversation!
Monday, February 1 – First post – share our enthusiasm for the book, some background & author information.
Monday, February 8 – First check in – Chapters 1 – 6
Monday, February 15 – Second check in – Chapters 7 – 12
Monday February 22 – Third check in – Chapters 13 -18
Monday February 29 – Final check in – Chapters 19 – 25 & Final reviews
Be warned, the check ins will contain spoilers for the chapters that week!
I will be entering all participants who post a review or contribute to the final post into a giveaway – I will shout you the next classic you wish to read! (up to the value of US$15, as long as book depository ships to you.) You can simply write your impressions on twitter, post a review to any site or contribute to the last progress post on Ranty Runt of a Reader. All you need to do is link to your participation in the final check in. If you don’t want to be considered for the giveaway, just mention that in your comment.
To declare your intent to participate, simply post in the comments of this post, and what platform (including URL) that you will be using to talk all things Bronte!
