November 1 through December 30David Copperfield by Charles Dickens

All right, clubbers! It’s the two-thirds point for our fourth 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.)

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.)

This post is for you! Tell us how your reading is going! If you know some background on Dickens you want to share, if you have read the novel before and are redipping with 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. If you like it, if you don’t like it, if you forgot to begin the book. Etc.

Having any struggles? Loving anything in particular? Favorite character? Are you still with us?

We’ll toss up our final post on December 30 for the finish. Subscribe to the comments below to follow the discussion.

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

  1. I’m almost half-way through. I have to say, so far it’s probably my favourite Dickens, although I really liked Martin Chuzzlewit too. I do hope that David gets a little more insight into people’s characters soon. I have a feeling there are some surprises in store for him that aren’t far off.

  2. I have finished it last week! It has been a memorable and emotional reading for me. How could I ever forget Miss Betwey Trotwood, Mr. Peggoty, Mr. Micawber, and even the ‘umble Uriah Heep? I think DC has become my new favorite, and the best of Dickens I’ve read so far.
    Thanks for hosting this sync reading!
