The responses were swift and urgent: I MUST READ THIS NOW. Some called it their favorite classic. Others urged me to read it IN ALL CAPS. Some gave tips on how to best approach it, how to view it in context, how they first came to the novel as a child or adult or some age in between.Bookworm confession: I've never read Jane Eyre. How urgent is it that I fix this?— Kerry M (@ofabookworm) July 29, 2013
It's pretty phenomenal, this Twitter thing, isn't it?
(I will be reading the Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition, so the schedule below breaks out into about 110 pages per week... totally doable, guys):
(EDITED to avoid postings on Saturdays, which tend to be less than ideal for most people):
September 2nd: Kick-off post, introductions, why you're reading, etc.
September 9th: Chapters I-XI
September 16th: Chapters XII-XXI
September 23rd: Chapters XXII-XXIX
September 30th: Chapters XXX-End
More details and logistics available here.
First update: GIFs, images, and other creative uses of the interwebs to express love and/or disappointment with this book are of course more than welcome.
Second update: But of course, GIFs, images, etc. are not required.
Third update: I've changed the schedule above as most people prefer not to post on Saturdays. New start date: September 2nd.
