I’m excited to re-read this trilogy! Especially since I picked up this beautiful, surprisingly slim anthology that includes all three book. Sign-ups are going on hereย and are hosted by Pages Unboundย and Chasm of Books.

I’m also excited to read Emma for the first time. It should be fun! We’ll be discussing chapters 1-9 on January 18th, so it’s not too late to join. Allison at The Cheap Reader is hosting and sign-ups are here.

    I’ve recently finished reading The Monuments Men, so I won’t be participating in the readalong. It’s such a great idea, though. I’m eager to find out what you think about it!

    Have fun!

      I hope you enjoyed it as much as I am, because I’m liking it a lot. It seems like very well done narrative non-fiction to me ๐Ÿ™‚

      Wonderful! With all these read-a-longs, an easy read would definitely help me keep on schedule ๐Ÿ™‚ And I’m glad to hear that you like Emma. I love S&S and P&P but was not so impressed with Mansfield Park, so I’m hoping Emma is more enjoyable.

    Woah, I love the idea of the LOTR-readalong, but I have so many things going on this month I’m not sure if I can do it. Maybe I’ll just start reading and try to catch up ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’m probably going to be playing catch up on this one a bit myself, but I also really loved the idea and just couldn’t pass it up. I don’t re-read books very often, but I love LOTR and thought it was time to revisit it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Amazing! All of these read-a-longs look like fun and I’d join you if I wasn’t already committed to reading Paradise Lost. I think you will find Emma a good book. Have you read any of Jane Austen’s other books?

      Haha, there are just so many read-a-longs this month. I think we must all be feeling motivated by the new year ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve read P&P, recently re-read S&S, and also just read Mansfield Park for the first time. I loved the first two, but was not especially impressed by Mansfield Park.

      Haha, yeah, this may be a bad idea, but I figure worst case scenario, I can always catch up on the LOTR read-a-long in February ๐Ÿ™‚
