Les Miserables Blog Hop

April 12, 2012 at 3:08 am (Events, Reviews) (, , , )

I have been picking up and setting down Hugo’s Les Miserables for a few months now.  Its not fair… to me, to the book, to dear Hugo.  I WANT to read it, I do, but I need some buddies.  So I found the perfect solution to my dilemma and I hope some of you will join.

Kate’s Library is this cute little book blog, with a huge following, that I stumbled across on Carolina Cuicci’s blog Reading Against The Clock (.blogspot.com).  It seems I am not the only one with a brain block on Hugo this year and Kate is hosting a read-a-long.  The details are provided below on the link, but I’ll quote a few of the highlights.


From Kate’s Library:

Have you ever wanted to read Les Miserables? Do you want to bond with your fellow bloggers through a fun readalong? Do you like big books and you cannot lie? Are you looking for a readalong/challenge that’s incredibly low key? Do you want to grab 2012 by the face and make it the best reading year ever?

If the answer to any of these questions is “YES!” you may consider joining me in a 2012 litventure.  I’m hosting a readalong/challenge to read Les Miserables by Victor Hugo throughout the year 2012.

Each blogger that participates will be posting updates of the sections they have read as they complete them.  So whether you are a blogger wanting to add your opinions to the cyber world concerning Hugo’s great work, or are just a reader wanting follow the hop, check it out.
