A Literary Odyssey posted about her War and Peace Readalong, I knew I couldn't pass it up. This will take place between January and February and will have four check-in dates.
The following is the schedule that Allie posted on her blog:
January 15, 2011: The first check-in will focus on volume 1. In my edition it is about 295 pages.
January 31, 2011: The second check-in will focus on volume 2. In my edition it is about 306 pages.
February 12, 2011: The third check-in will focus on volume 3. In my edition it is about 332 pages (the longest section).
February 28, 2011: The fourth check-in will cover volume 4 and the 2-part epilogue. These sections are about 282 pages in my edition.
Am I crazy for doing this? Probably. If you're not interested in War and Peace, you might find another of Allie's readalongs in which to participate. She will be hosting six two-month readalongs and twelve one-month readalongs. I've only participated in one readalong, but I found it to be a great way to tackle intimidating books.
