Brothers Karamazov Ceilidh




Jill at Fizzy Thoughts and Trish at Love Laughter Insanity are hosting a Brothers Karamazov read a long. My review for the classics tour is due on July 14 but I am nowhere near done and I have six book tours next week and eleven total before July 14. So I am joining a read a long to hopefully make sure I finish this book. I am on page 46. Really. Not sure why this is so hard for me. I really do want to read it though. :)

From their post:
It’s the Brothers Karamazov Ceilidh! Huh? Well, ceilidh is Gaelic for a party with music and dancing and sometimes storytelling. And we’re going to read The Brothers Karamazov. Yes, really. While I can’t promise any music or dancing, with this long of a book, there’s bound to be lots of storytelling. Besides which, it’s alliterative (say kay-lee) and difficult to spell, just like Karamazov and Dostoevsky!




We’re going to suggest reading a book a week (although if you’re a glutton for punishment and/or a procrastinator, feel free to do all of your reading the night before). But we’re only going to post our summaries/thoughts/pleas for help at the end of each part. Which means we’ll write our posts at the end of weeks 3, 6, 9 and 12.

The official start date for this adventure is July 10th. And here’s the official reading and posting schedule:

Book 1: 7/10-7/16
Book 2: 7/17-7/23
Book 3: 7/24-7/30
