1000 Books Project: Les Miserables - Status Update


I'm having a dilemma and I'm hoping you will 1) understand and 2) work with me on this. I hope I'm not asking too much. 

I'm having a very difficult time with Les Miserables. Don't get me wrong...it is very good. I guess maybe I'm just not in the mindset for it right now. It's fall and Halloween month and all I want to do is read scary.

Plus, I'm traveling to Salem, Massachusetts in a week and I'm going to have even less time for reading. After October, I'll be shortly segueing into holiday reading. So...I'm thinking I'm going to make this a very less structured and long term read-along. I just know I cannot finish Les Miserables before the end of the year. I'm hoping you will still read-along, but I will understand if you decide not to. I'm going to keep reading, and will post discussions periodically so if you do continue to read-along, please feel free to share your thoughts.

Thanks for understanding! Sometimes a person has to step back from too much.

Next year, 1000 Books Project will be focusing on a bit less weighty reading material. We will be reading classic fantasy. The Once and Future King by T.H. White (Jan - June) and The Gormenghast Novels by Mervyn Peake (July - December). Stay tuned!
