Jane Eyre Read-along
Kerry at Entomology of a Bookworm is hosting "Septemb-Eyre: A Jane Eyre" read-along and I have decided to join in! If you're interested, be sure to check it out here. It's a great opportunity for me to knock another book of my Classics list, and it's always nice to have others reading along with you.
But first, I have a little confession to make....not only have I not read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, I don't actually know what it is about.
Seriously Miss Jay. (And hey, that's the first ever gif used on my blog!) I honestly cannot tell you one thing about the book if asked. So maybe it's a good thing this read-along has come along.
ETA: I posted this a few days before the actual intro post. Today, September 3, everyone else is posting and introducing themselves, so I thought I'd add a bit about more for those who are new to my blog via the read-along. I'm on Twitter - @goodbooksandtea so be sure to find me. I'll be adding all participants to a list so I can follow everyone's thoughts as we go.
I am a stay at home mom of two little ones. My daughter starts Grade 2 today and my son starts Kindergarten tomorrow. I'm seriously looking forward to having my days to myself though I'm not looking forward to the busy mornings and afternoons as my kids go to different schools and leave for and from school an hour apart. Oh, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to fall apart when I come home from dropping my son off tomorrow.
I love to read but haven't read very many Classics, hence my joining the Classics Club and read alongs like this. For a long time I rebelled against anything that resembled required reading from high school so I'm working on changing that attitude. So far, I'm doing pretty well.
