REMINDER: War and Peace Read-a-long 2015!


Only three weeks left to sign up for the War & Peace read-a-long!

There will be ten weeks of finally reading that book you've always meant to get to, plus the added bonus of getting to be nosy at everybody else's posts. We'll start reading on February 1st and every Sunday after that, I'll post a list of prompts/questions that you can answer in your own post if you want to. If you don't, just have a good old ramble. Either way, link up on this blog and we can all support each other.

Some people have asked me if the time period of eleven weeks is really long enough for this. I'll be posting in a schedule in a fortnight so you can have a look for yourself, but I'm perfectly willing to extend the time period if we need to.

Just think - in three months time, you'll have read War & Peace!

  2. Guys, I've decided to join you, since I wanted to read War and Peace this year anyway (just like every previous year of my life :p). I think it's the kind of book that I don't want to read alone. Yay!

  3. I've downloaded my copy (because neither I nor my handbags are physically strong enough to carry the "real" book for eleven weeks) and I'm excited! I actually have a ton of meetings in London (which may or may not turn into a secondment :|) over the next few months so I'm hoping that the amount of time that I'll be on trains will mean that I'll be able to keep up!

    I am genuinely weirdly looking forward to this, actually :)

    1. I'm thrilled but scared at the same time too! I'm contemplating buying a physical copy for the readalong as a very tangible reminder that I will finish (eye on the prize) reading this book... but carrying around an ebook might be more feasible! What do I dooooo?

  4. Whew, am I glad you posted a reminder. I already completely forgot about this again. I'm sure it'll be fun though, ha :D

  5. I bought War and Peace when Borders was going out of business and everything was 90% off. Now I'm finally going to read it!

    1. That's just how I feel - I really wanted to read it, but I didn't think it would ever happen on my own!

  8. I'm in! But I posted the wrong URL at first, would you mind deleting that one? Thanks! I look forward to reading along with everyone :) - Maggie @ macarons & paperbacks
