Jane Eyre Synchro-Read Starts Today!




Good Morning Dear Readers!

It's Jane Eyre Day!

I am so pumped. I've been looking forward to this one for quite a while.

So here's how the Synchro-Read will work:

1. Go to my Classical Quest Facebook Page and click "like" if you haven't already.

2. Grab an unabridged copy of Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte.

3. Read as much as you are reasonably able to each day. Remember, I have five young children so this is not a high pressure thing! Most people can easily keep up with my pace.

4. I will try to post a status update for each chapter read. (If you haven't seen something in over 24 hours it probably means there is a stomach virus in my house.)

5. Feel free to read ahead. I promise I won't be mad at you! In fact, I encourage you to read ahead if you can.

6. Interact with me and other readers under the status update for each chapter. Write about how the chapter makes you feel. Share you favorite passages. Ask questions. You are even allowed to complain! Don't worry about being articulate. Just be yourself. Your thoughts matter.

7. If you come across an interesting article on the web about Jane Eyre, feel free to post it directly on the timeline.

8. Enjoy!

  2. Oh my, I'm currently reading Don Quixote (about 1/4 in), but I don't think I can resist this invitation to read JE again!!! I'm pretty sure I'll jump in at some point, even if I'm not in sync. : ) Happy reading!

    1. No worries. We'll catch up with each other in the future. Enjoy your journey with the man from La Mancha! You've been wanting to complete that one for a long time. I look forward to hearing your thoughts about it -- as well as your memories of Spain! Would you consider writing a DQ themed guest post?

  7. I'm going to pass on the read-along, Adriana, but I posted a link to this post for my friends over at the Republic of Pemberley. Plenty of Bronte fans there and some might want to join in.

  8. This is my favorite classic (perhaps book) to date. I can't wait to get around to a re-read when I hit that point in my WEM journey. I'm planning on starting with Don Quixote in January.

    1. I'm so glad you stopped by to introduce yourself, Liz! A new WEMer! How exciting! I visited your blog this evening. Love the family picture. Looking forward to getting to know you better. :-) Blessings on your WEM journey!

      P.S. We are planning on wearing "I survived The Well Educated Mind" t-shirts when we finish.
