Today I signed up to participate in
Discovering Dickens - A Community Reading Project
. Basically it's a project to drum up interest in reading Dickens the way he was originally published: in serial form. So once a week for ten weeks they send you installments of a novel (this year it's Hard Times)...ostensibly, to read aloud to family whilst sitting around your drawing room in the evenings, wearing Victorian dress. The idea sounds really cool; plus, I haven't read anything of Dickens since that blasted book report of Great Expectations in 10th grade, and surely there's something wrong with that. So between this and netflix, my mailbox will be a regular party.
