Candide Read-Along

Fariba from Exploring Classics is doing a read-along of Candide by Voltaire in March and I have decided to join.  My schedule should have eased somewhat by then and I should be able to fit it in relatively easily.

Here is the outline:

The event will be from March 1 – 31, 2014.

Fariba will be reading the work in the original language, but all posts will be in English.  Here is the posting schedule:

Monday, March 10:  chapters 1 – 8

Monday, March 17:  chapters 9 – 16

Monday March 24:  chapters 17 – 24

Monday, March 31:  chapters 25 – 30 (last post)

After she posts about a series of chapters, you have a whole week to comment on those chapters.

Depending on if I have enough time, I may tried to read the novel in the original French, or at the very least read some of it in French.  I don’t quite know what to expect from this novel but I’m looking forward to it!

  1. LOL! So either way it will be a fresh and new experience for you. 🙂

    I'm happy to hear that you're joining. As small as the book is, I have a feeling that I'm going to need some friendly fellow readers to help me figure out exactly what Voltaire is satirizing.

Thanks for visiting. I'd love to hear from you and have you join in the discussion!
