Where I Confess My Failings

The Annotated Pride and PrejudiceI had promised a post for last Wednesday about the Quarterly Reading Challenge, which featured Pride and PrejudicePride and Prejudice this month.

I avoided the post last week, thinking surely I’d have finished the book and gotten a post together by this week.

Instead, I’m writing this on Sunday evening and am acknowledging that there is no way I’ll both read the rest of the book and write a coherent post about it before Wednesday morning.

So rather than speed-read or cram it all by forfeiting sleep (my usual technique in high school), I’ll just beg forgiveness from anyone anxiously awaiting the post (that’s a joke; I don’t think anyone is anxiously awaiting it), and share a real post later, once I’ve completed the book. ๐Ÿ™‚

Until then, you can read Amy’s post about Pride and Prejudice; she hasn’t finished it either although she’s further along than I am.

(Note to anyone interested in reading along: you can grab a free Kindle copy of Pride and Prejudice right herePride and Prejudice.)

(Note to self: start A Tale of Two CitiesA Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens earlier in the quarter. As in, right after I finish Austen.)

  2. This is one of the reasons that I enjoy audio books so much. There are many classics that I probably would have never experienced otherwise.

    • That’s a really good idea – wish I’d listened to a lot of them while I was commuting and had lots of built-in listening time. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I thought I would join in on this challenge but I never started the book! Maybe I’ll try to get in on Tale of Two Cities: )
