Readalong of The Penelopiad

I’m a bit late with this post, but I just wanted to give everyone the heads up that Bellezza and Col are hosting a readalong of Margaret Atwood’s The Penelopiad. This would be the ideal opportunity to read a book that counts toward this challenge with others. Readalongs often help motivate me to start a book or keep going.

Bellezza says that “We’ll be reading it the week of May 23 through May 28, 2011, with a review to be posted on Monday, May 30. Of course, if anything strikes our fancy before the 30th, we may post on that as well.”

Need more convincing? Read Bellezza’s post here. Col already wrote about her initial thoughts here.

I got The Penelopiad from my library and am very excited about it. Thanks Bellezza and Col for hosting!

  1. I was thinking that there would be no way for me to get through this – however in audio it is only a little over 3 hours long. I may be able to do this.

    At the very least – I will be lurking.

  2. I really loved The Penelopiad, although I see there are very different opinions on the book! A least it’s a great way to start a conversation about feminism and literature and myths! Thanks again for hosting this challenge!

  3. Great to hear that you all are reading Penelopiad! Hope that you enjoy it as much as I do.
