I failed. Miserably. The names were all so crazy, the plot at the beginning was so slow and I was so incredibly confused that I just had to set it aside. I didn't want to, because it was on my goal list this year, but I did it anyway.
So, when I saw that Unputdownables was hosting a readalong for Anna Karenina, I said SIGN ME UP! I really want to get this read, and I think that reading it as a read-a-long will really help me to get through it. I recently read Gone With the Wind as a read-a-long and ended up LOVING it, and quite honestly, I probably would never have read it otherwise. So, this is the opening post.
I'll be reading about 60 some odd pages a week, so every Friday, expect to see a post about the section that I have read that week. This will last all the way until December, as this is a really long book!
I'm excited to get started on it!
