Sync Read #3: To the Lighthouse (Start Reading!)

To the Lighthouse

– Sync Read #3 –

September 10 through October 10 To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf

— # —

All right, clubbers! Today is Day One of our third sync read, which is designed to be stress-free and place the focus on reading together, rather than completing assignments. (Unless that’s your thing.)

It’s also cleverly designed to keep your moderators from tearing out their hair doing research. So it’s about you, and the book. And you.

Are you reading? Weigh in below — chat, leave a link to your post if you wrote something, read quietly if you prefer to keep to yourself but love knowing you’re reading with others, even silently. Weigh in here and say nothing at your blog. Whatever suits your personality.

There is no Mr. Linky below because the point in this feature is to talk together in a central place, and list our blogs if it comes up. (Which is of course welcome.)

Tell us if you’re excited, if you know some background on Virginia Woolf you want to share, if you have read the novel before and plan to redip with the group (or just encourage the group), if you feel sentimental about the read for any reason (maybe the book was a family member’s favorite), if you read it in college and want to try it again on your own, if you’ve never read it and don’t know what it’s about but it’s on your list so you’re reading it. Etc.

Are you nervous about this one? If so, why?

We’ll toss up another post on September 26 to see how the read is going, and one more on October 10 for the finish. Subscribe to the comments below to follow the discussion.

(No spoilers please!) – And it’s no pressure here! Feel free to weigh in in a week or nine months, if you like.

  5. I’m excited, but nervous about reading this. I LOVED Mrs. Dalloway and am not sure how another book could be even close to that brilliant. But it could be, which would be amazing. I haven’t started reading yet, but am traveling soon and will have lots of airport time to read, so it’s going in my bag.
