Tell us about your project — or you! Introduce yourself. (You can introduce yourself more officially here!) Chat.
Tell us what you’ve read, how you’re feeling about your progress, how much you love the classics or the community – any struggles, a favorite read so far. Really, whatever you feel like sharing!
Some people prefer writing an update at their own blog and linking it here in the comments. That’s fine, too.
Please — don’t feel like you are speaking directly to me when you comment, just because I wrote this post. I want this to be a group party. I open the door and invite you in, and then you discuss together.
Feel free to respond to one another in the comments, ask questions, visit each other, tell us you are new to the club, planning to join the club – etc. This is like a meet and greet.
And do not feel ashamed of your progress!! Even if you’ve not finished anything yet. This thread is a conversation — that’s all.
If you’re having trouble with your list and need encouragement, say that! That’s absolutely understandable. We want new classics readers to join us, so there’s nothing wrong with arriving to this thread with all of the newness showing!
(Please also note the “check-in” feature here is entirely voluntarily, intended for those who like weighing in with others in the group, and having a periodic place to reflect upon goals for the club. For some this feature would feel like an unwanted intrusion. Silent participation in this group is of course welcome!)
Thanks for all of your enthusiasm about this project, clubbers. We’re excited to see us at 221 and counting.
