O at Behold the Stars is hosting a read-along of The Pickwick Papers beginning March 1, 2016. Now, this is not just any read-along, but a read-along with a twist. We are actually going to be reading along with the same serial publication schedule in which the book was published, which means that this read-along is going to take about a year and a half to finish. Does that sound too long? I challenge you to try it. Not only will you get the real Pickwick Papers experience, it’s not too heavy of a commitment, so it won’t interfere very much with other reads. I’ve also found it beneficial to read a bit of a book and then let it percolate in your mind; you can often get more out of it that way. In any case, I’m really excited about this read-along! Here’s the schedule:
So, if this read-along appeals to you, grab your Pickwick Papers and join us for a realistic reading experience!
