As a part of our List Swap Challenge, Jen (yes, this Jen) and I decided to read (pre-Oprah we decided this!) A Tale of Two Cities together, and because I am a big old nerd I said that we should read it in installments and as it was originally published. And, because she is a big old nerd she decided that was a good idea. We will be reading a section a week for the next five months or so and posting our conversations on our tumblr. Check out our What’s Old Is New tumblr for the schedule.
Hopefully we will love the story so much that we will be biting our nails in anticipation of the next installment. Remember, no peeking ahead!
We can officially start reading this Saturday, January 8th, and will start a new section each week.
I am very curious to read this book in this way. These were the original cliffhangers. When Dickens died, he was in the middle of writing The Mystery of Edwin Drood, and he didn’t write that many installments ahead. He was writing as he went, and when he died, his story died with him. Thankfully we won’t be dealing with that ultimate cliffhanger, we just have to get through each week. Grab the button and read with us!
