If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler Readalong Begins

Friday, November 1, 2013



The readalong begins! We've got a great group that's decided to tackle Italo Calvino’s masterpiece, If On a Winter’s Night a Traveler together. Care’s Online Book Club and I are co-hosting a laid back readalong of the book starting today. Anyone is still welcome to join in if they would like! 

Here are the details:

1) Try to read the first 5 chapters (114 pages) by November 15 and do a mid-way post if you would like to. Stop by Care's blog that day to see what everyone is thinking so far. 

2) Finish the remaining chapters by November 30th and post about it when you can. I'll be doing the wrap up post. 

3) Tweet your thoughts as you go with #ReadCalvino.

4) Please add a link to your blog (if you have one) using the Linky below if you're participating. 

I can't wait to hear everyone's thoughts as we go along!

I'm going to try! I suck at reading on a schedule usually, but I'll try.

I got my copy and started reading during lunch!

I read this years ago and I cannot wait to read it again.

bkclubcare - Heck yeah!

Amy - Just read at your own speed, definitely no hurry.

JoAnn - Me too!

figandthistle.com - I'm so glad you loved enough for a re-read. That's a good sign!

Ooops, I've accidentally already finished it! Just couldn't stop after chapter 5! Does finishing a book in a couple of days count as a failure in a month-long read-a-long? :) But the book is so awesome! I'm looking forward to the discussions!

Ekaterina Egorova - Bahaha, I think that's a success not a failure. I finished the first section in a day and had to stop myself long enough to write a midway post. I can't wait to hear your thoughts!
