Hiatus?

2.28.2014


Never mind a post title - that ought to be the blog title!

I came into this year so sanguine about my reading list, and here it is a few hours away from March, with little to show for such ambitions.  School and work are keeping me on my toes, literally all week long.  As for reading, I've fallen asleep to The Works of Josephus and after a page of Nostromo.  I'm still reading The Brothers Karamazov, but very slowly.  Pretty sad.

Spring quarter might give me more time to read, since I will only have two classes.  It's just that step of making time to read which is daunting.  I'm going to keep trying and hopefully have something to share with you here, before long.

Eugene Onegin Read-Along ~ Chapters 7 & 8

2.05.2014


Here we are at the final part of the read-along!  It feels like it's gone so fast!  Truth be told, I still have to read chapters 5 & 6, so if you're not up to chapter 7 yet, rest assured you're not alone. 

The last week has been hectic for me, and I know the next week will also be.  I had some laptop issues and lost quite a few files, hence my unpreparedness for this concluding part.  Nevertheless, keep submitting your links - for any of the chapters - and I will certainly be reading them soon and writing a second post. 

Lastly, thanks to you all for your participation!!  It's been fascinating to read your different insights, and really given us all new ways to perceive the characters, their motives, and the story.  Honestly, I could go on for hours dissecting the character of Onegin alone.  Perhaps some future year we could have this read-along again.  :)
